Maryland Architecture, Planning and Preservation (MAPP) offers a unique combination of world-class resources, interdisciplinary opportunities and intimate learning environments, all situated in easy reach of Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis.
The School houses five academic programs: Architecture; Urban Studies and Planning; Historic Preservation; Real Estate Development; PhD.
The School has evolved into an academic center that is inclusive of the design, social, cultural and environmental aspects of human settlements. In 2005, New Urban News noted in a national survey of architecture programs that the University of Maryland offers the only architecture program in the nation to include professional Masters programs and related PhD-level studies in planning, preservation and real estate development within the same school.
We believe that physical design and social environment are interrelated, and that best practice and research should reflect this interconnectedness. All of the School's programs benefit from the collaborative environment and cross-disciplinary communication among the faculty and students of all the programs. Our mission is a quality built environment that promotes social justice, cultural value, resource conservation and economic opportunity.
