Admission Requirements



Individuals who have completed a comprehensive five-year professional bachelor of architecture degree or its equivalent, demonstrating high achievement in design, are eligible for admission. Programs leading to post-professional degrees do not need to be accredited, as applicants would normally have already completed the degree required for certification.




A minimum of four terms of full-time study in residence is required for award of the degree.




* A minimum of 2 option studios taken over the course of a student’s program must be offered by the Department of Architecture.

** Students are required to fulfill the following distributional electives:


4 units of Discourse and Techniques electives


4 units of Professional Practice electives


4 units of Technologies of Visualization and Fabrication


An approved list of distributional electives is posted each term.


A minimum of one half of the electives in the student’s curriculum must be fulfilled by courses offered at the GSD. Students are eligible to fulfill electives through cross-registered courses at other Harvard schools, MIT, or the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts. For more information on cross-registration, please see the GSD cross-registration info page.
