Anthropology (MA)

Anthropology is the scientific and humanistic study of the human species. Anthropologists take a holistic and cross-cultural view of the species, integrating biological, historical, and cultural perspectives. In the broadest sense, anthropologists study what it means to be human. The Master of Arts in Anthropology is designed to meet the needs of two groups of students: (a) the General Anthropology track is recommended for those preparing for doctoral education or for teaching at the community college level; and (b) the Applied Anthropology track is recommended for students seeking expanded skills for employment in our increasingly inter-cultural and international world. Applied anthropologists may work in schools, health care organizations, international development agencies, corporations, government agencies, non-profit foundations, and elsewhere.

Applied Econometrics (CERT)

Econometrics is the application of statistical methods to economic problems. Econometrics skills are in high demand in both the corporate world and the public sector. In the business world, a few examples of areas in which those with econometrics training work are financial analysis, forecasting, market research, logistics, and quality control. For example, econometrics can be used to determine which factors predict whether a borrower will default on a loan and can be used to forecast trends. Econometrics training is also useful for government jobs. Policy makers need hard evidence on which to base their decisions; data must be collected, analyzed, and presented in a convincing way. State and Federal Government departments, such as the Federal Reserve and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, regularly seek graduates with econometric skills. All courses in the Applied Econometrics certificate focus on using data and statistics to answer questions and solve business related problems.

Architecture-M.Arch I (ARC1) (MARC)

The M.Arch I program is a NAAB-accredited professional degree designed for those who have completed an undergraduate degree in a discipline other than Architecture (such as Business, Engineering, Political Science, etc). In the first year of the program, students acquire the fundamentals of visual and spatial design, conceptualization, problem solving, and material and environmental influences. In addition to design studio, students take introductory coursework in architectural history and theory, building technology, and representation. In the second year, students join incoming M.Arch II students to complete a curriculum consisting of a comprehensive architectural design project, which includes an advanced-design studio coupled with courses in contemporary theory, building technology, computational methods, design methodology, and architectural electives. In the third year, students complete a research-driven graduate design studio, and a research or design-based thesis, along with courses in architectural research, professional practice, and additional architectural electives.

Architecture-M.Arch III (ARC3) and MS in Computer Science or MS in Information Technology (dual degree) (MARC + MS)

The M.Arch III and Master of Science in Computer Science or Master of Science in Information Technology dual degree program has become increasingly important to computer scientists and at the same time computation has become important to designers. This program is a unique curriculum that systematically combines the strength and insights of each discipline. As computing has matured as a discipline, it has expanded its focus to include the physical and virtual settings in which users interact with the machine. Specialties like human computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, gaming and visualization require an understanding not only of the logic of the machine, but also the logic of the user. Within architecture, there is a unique opportunity to develop students who will have the knowledge to lead the integration of the computer into architectural practice and research. As firms rely more and more on computation, those who know how to think, program and script will be able to change the way architects design and practice.
