CCCP Admissions Requirements

Applications are due January 15. All applicants for admission to the program must have a minimum of a four-year bachelor degree or equivalent, including no less than 4 classes in architecture, architectural history, or a related form of aesthetic or cultural practice. Applicants who do not hold a B.Arch or M.Arch degree or the equivalent should demonstrate a substantive interest in architecture and/or urbanism through providing evidence of work in history, theory, criticism, research, design, editing, events-coordination, visualization, exhibition work or curatorial practice.

Visual acuity and interest in undertaking independent research and original projects are crucial for all applicants and the submission of a portfolio of writing or visual material is intended to provide the admissions committee with evidence of an applicant’s areas of interest and/or skills as well as preparation in the field he or she intends to pursue. It is not, however, necessary to have extensive experience in order to be admitted, but in the absence of such a background it is very important that the character and strengths of a prospective student’s work and interests are documented and conveyed. The portfolio should not exceed 8.51 by 11 inches, should not measure more than .5 inch in thickness, and should be submitted with the application. The portfolio will be returned by mail only if sufficient postage and packaging are included and if the return address is indicated on the portfolio. Submission of a CV is optional but highly recommended with the application.

Applicants for this program enter in the Fall term; they must attend on a full-time basis for four consecutive semesters.
