Starting this spring, the School of Architecture will offer a new
concentration in research practices within their master of science in
architecture degree (MS-RP) for students starting the fall of 2013.
The program aims at halving the amount of time from high school to
licensure for architects--from an average of 14.5 years to 7.
By offering this model, the School of Architecture nudges the
profession toward true culture change, one that expects all students
to be licensed upon graduation, regardless of their final career
choices. It also takes advantage of recent changes to the National
Council of Architectural Registration Board's Intern Development
Program and Architect Registration Examination, and leverages the
historically strong connection between practice and academy in the
Minneapolis/St Paul community.
