University of Michigan's Taubman College graduate degree in architecture is open to students who have already earned a pre-professional undergraduate degree in architecture (2-year) as well as those who received undergraduate degree in a subject other than architecture (3-year).
1.Statement of Purpose / CV
The statement is where you can distinguish yourself from other applicants. We want you to tell us more about yourself and why you want to come to U-M and be part of the Taubman College community. Your response should be 500-1000 words and clearly provide us with an opportunity to get to know you on a more personal level, beyond your GPA, test scores and courses.
Your ideas should be clear, well stated, and specific. Here are some tips for writing a great essay:
There is no “right” answer. Don’t think you know what we want to hear. Whatever you have to say about the topic is of interest to us. (You may want to steer clear of your early passion for Legos, however.)
Why Architecture? Self Explanatory.
Why Architecture at Taubman College? No two architecture schools are alike. Why does our program stand out to you? What do you hope you will find here and what do you hope to be able to do with it?
Help us understand your portfolio. Given that the portfolio is more than an accounting of each of your studios (see below) we want to know what you learned from these projects? What was your approach? What was your take-away?
Tell us what is unique about you. Why would you stand out among the rest of our applicants? Is there something different about your personal experiences?
A good curriculum vitae or resume will give us another view of who you are and elaborate your strengths and skills outside of the classroom, showcasing your accomplishments. In addition to your educational experience, student resumes should contain professional experiences, other jobs you have held, a list of groups or organizations that you are involved in, programming languages or other computer skills you have, community involvement or volunteer work that you do. Think of your resume as another opportunity to tell us about yourself.
A strong portfolio is a design problem of its own.
Samples of work should be chosen to cover the breadth as well as the depth of your design skills or artistic abilities, experiences in building, or other talents that illustrate your propensity for architecture. The admissions committee is interested in work that demonstrates knowledge, interest, and ability in technical areas, human and social concerns, and symbolic and aesthetic issues. The committee considers the following types of work to be suitable for inclusion in the portfolio: architectural design, urban design, graphic design, photography, painting, sculpture, freehand drawings, and other types of work that represent your knowledge, aptitudes, and experience. Please limit the amount of technical work in your portfolio, and for any professional or group work clearly identify your role in its production.
Edit your portfolio carefully. There is no need to show every project you have ever done. We want to see your strongest work. Stick to the page and file size limits explained in our application procedures.
4.Grade Point Review
Competitive applicants for admission will have a 3.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) or above. We will review any letter grades on your transcript, convert to a U.S. 4.0 scale if necessary:
Cumulative Grade Point Average (CUM GPA) - this includes all the courses listed on your transcript.
English skills are important. We will be looking for applicants who are strong in all areas of communication: reading, writing, listening and speaking. English proficiency test scores provide us with information about how well you will be able to communicate inside and outside the classroom.
6.Letters Of Recommendation
Three (3) letters of recommendation are required and should testify to your academic and professional capacity and promise. If possible, two of these should come from former professors.
Applicants will scan and upload an unofficial transcript or certified credentials from all universities, colleges, community colleges, study abroad, and summer programs attended.
Taubman College only requires official transcripts from those students accepting our offer of admission.
Taubman College’s graduate professional degree in architecture is a studio intensive degree that takes a critical view of design, theory, and production. Professional coursework and electives in topical areas supplement the design education model. The combination of professional coursework and coursework in representation, fabrication, history, and theory prepares students to engage in a research-based thesis design project as their final studio. The program offers a wide-array of electives in history/theory, criticism, structures, environmental and construction technology, urbanism, sustainable design, computation, and digital fabrication. It is enhanced by its context, which includes urban planners, urban designers, doctoral students, and post-professional students concentrating in conservation, material systems, design and health, and digital technology. The college recognizes the value of the perspective gained from university-wide and discipline-wide collaborations and encourages students to utilize the resources available at a premier research institution. Students who earned an undergraduate degree in architecture complete their M.Arch Degree in two years. Students who hold an undergraduate degree in another discipline should expect to follow the 3-year Master of Architecture course of study. The M.Arch. degree is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).
