The School of Architecture's Accelerated Master's Program offers baccalaureate students the opportunity to expedite their completion of a Master’s degree, saving both time and money—and allowing them to hit the job market with specialized knowledge and two Carnegie Mellon degrees.

To take advantage of all the benefits of the program, Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) students must apply to the AMP in their fourth year and begin pursuing their Master's coursework in their fifth year. Bachelor of Arts in Architecture (BA) students must apply to the AMP in their third year and begin pursuing their Master's coursework in their fourth year.

An AMP student must complete all of the units required by BOTH programs less a maximum of 48 units that can be double-counted. For instance, B.Arch + MSSD–Applied would be 450 units + 135 units less 48 double-counted units, or 537 total units total for two degrees.

To apply for fall AMP admission, complete an application by February 1 of that year. Learn more about the program and the application process by contacting Alexis McCune Secosky at amccune@andrew.cmu.edu.
