Penn offers two advanced, post-professional degrees in Environmental Building Design, a 2-semester, professionally oriented MEBD degree and a 3-semester, research-oriented MSD-EBD degree. The two degrees share a common first year, while the MSD-EBD continues for a research intensive final semester.



Students already enrolled in Master level programs at Penn can enroll in two certificates: the Ecological Architecture Certificate (EARC) and the Environmental Building Design Certificate (EBDC). The EARC is a more flexible certificate, while the EBDC allows students in the MArch to complete the required courses and studio with the MEBD students.
