Philadelphia University is launching a new M.S. in Geodesign, an innovative program that utilizes a sophisticated design framework and advanced technology for professionals to use in planning and designing sustainable built and natural environments....The M.S. in Geodesign is a 36-credit, full- or part-time graduate program with classes offered evenings and Saturdays. Students in PhilaU’s Landscape Architecture program can complete both their bachelor’s degree and M.S. in Geodesign in five years. The M.S. in Geodesign is designed primarily for professionals in the fields of landscape architecture, architecture and urban planning, although applicants with degrees in other fields will be considered for admission on an individual basis. All students must take an accelerated introductory course in ArcView GIS training, which will be offered in summer 2013.

I think the program starts this fall, but can't find that stated anywhere in the press release or program website.
