MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ARCHITECTURE UPDATE
During the Spring semester, we will continue to have two groups of M.S. Arch students in the School of Architecture.

These students will graduate in May and will be eligible to participate in The Cooper Union's 2022 Commencement Ceremony.
The group of five M.S. Arch students who began their studies in the Fall semester, will continue into their second semester of study in Spring and will complete their Thesis semester in Summer 2022.
