In our program, you don’t just learn about urban design, you do urban design!
A Master of Urban Design (MUD) degree from Ball State University’s College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) provides the skills to be an interdisciplinary leader in the design of our cities. Consider registering for our upcoming information session at CAP’s off-campus, Indianapolis location to learn about the exciting opportunities available to you in this program.
Graduate students in our Master of Urban Design (MUD) Program are trained in theory, practice, and design thinking methods related to engaging people and designing places within, and across, urban environments. Students work collaboratively with fellow students, professional faculty, and expert partners. Students are assigned professional mentors as well as have exposure and access to top municipal, neighborhood, and professional leaders through our unique location, diverse partnerships, and wide-ranging events.
The MUD Program is embedded in Indianapolis, in the College’s center for outreach and engagement, the CAP: INDY Connector. The program brings together students from various design-based backgrounds such as architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning. Admission is available for those with previous degrees in non-design disciplines on a case-by-case basis. MUD students are self-driven to explore design solutions for urban environments, not just from the focus of their previous disciplines, but instead in an interdisciplinary and holistic manner; such perspective is necessary when dealing with the complex problems facing our cities.
If you’re looking to develop the skills to become a thought leader in design, and wish to make an impact on a major city, before you even graduate, come join us to find out more information about what the Master of Urban Design Program can help you accomplish. The June 21 info session will allow you to speak with the MUD Program Director, meet current students, experience the CAP: INDY Connector, and hear further information about the program.
The session will be held at the CAP: INDY Connector @ the Platform, 202 E. Market St., Indianapolis, IN 46204. The Platform, which is the west wing of the City Market, is located at the corner of Delaware/Market across from the City-County Building. Entrance to the Platform is from the west plaza.
