Master of Urban Design
The Master of Urban Design (M.U.D.) is a 32 credit degree program for those with a degree in architecture or in a related discipline. The MUD is designed to supplement traditional architectural, landscape architecture and planning education with an understanding of the processes of urban development, and with the skills required to the physical shaping of urban places.
Lecture courses and seminars focus on social, cultural and environmental issues, while design workshops and studios develop strategies and solutions for specific urban areas, neighborhoods and landscapes. Interaction with local communities, through the Kent State University - Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (CUDC), is also an important part of the program.
