In 2004, MSU established the College of Architecture, Art, and Design. Previous to this creation, the college was known as the School of Architecture, housing a professional undergraduate program and a nonprofessional Master of Science in Architecture. Joining these two programs were the Interior Design Program, formerly from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and the Department of Art, formerly from the College of Arts and Sciences.

In 2007, the Mississippi Institute for Higher Learning Board approved the formation of the undergraduate program in Building Construction Science.
