Current “Undeclared-Architecture” Major at Mississippi State University

Current “Undeclared-Architecture” Major at Mississippi State University

I want to major in architecture.  I am a … Current “undeclared-architecture” major at Mississippi State University.

Undeclared-architecture students at Mississippi State will typically take all of the same core coursework that architecture majors take with the exception of ARCH Design IA and IB (first-year studio). Undeclared-architecture students should schedule regular meetings with the architecture advisor to confirm that they are on the appropriate curriculum path.



  • February 15 


  • To be considered for a departmental scholarship, you must fill out the university’s general scholarship application by March 1 (for the following academic year).

More information about scholarships


Mississippi State students who wish to pursue a Bachelor of Architecture degree will be evaluated for placement for the following summer or fall semester upon receipt of their architecture application. Semester placement is determined by previously completed college coursework; successful completion of one year of the undeclared-architecture curriculum – including Physics I, Physics II and Drawing I – will allow a student to apply for admission into the summer studio.

The S|ARC Admissions Committee will review applications as they are received based on academic, artistic, and personal qualifications, and admissions notifications will go out beginning March 1.

If accepted into the Mississippi State University School of Architecture, a student’s major will be changed to “architecture.” Students not initially accepted into the School of Architecture will remain “undeclared-architecture” majors and will be given the opportunity to reapply to the school (for fall or summer acceptance) after one academic year.

How to Apply

The additional required application for the School of Architecture can be found by logging in to your “myState” homepage (link: and clicking on the  “Apply to the School of Architecture” section.
