Notes


*A minimum of 18 university general education (UGE) elective credits must be taken, of which at least 6 must be in courses numbered 300 or above. Of these 18 UGE credits, 3 credits may be taken within the College of Architecture, Planning and Design. None, however, can be in a student’s major field. No more than two UGE courses may be taken in a single discipline. UGE courses must be taken at K-State, but transfer credits may reduce the number of lower-level UGE courses required; see sliding scale. Students who participate in study abroad programs approved by K-State will meet UGE credit at the 300 level upon successful completion of the program. See all relevant UGE policies.

**The M. ARCH degree requires 27 hours of professional support electives. Of these 27 credits, at least 3 hours must be planning elective credits, and at least 9 hours must be architecture seminar credits as defined in the advising handbook. In addition, 9 of the 27 credits must be taken in support of the student’s area of concentration as defined in the advising handbook. These 9 hours may include credits taken to fulfill the planning and seminar requirements.

***Distributed electives must be taken outside the College of Architecture, Planning and Design. They may be taken any time prior to or during the architecture program and may include K-State approved AP, IB, CLEP and transfer credits.

The 800 level courses and the electives courses listed in Bold type in the 5th year represent those hours required within the Graduate program.

Total hours required for graduation (170)
