Students interested in graduate-level study at the LRC now have more flexibility with a wider range of degree options. The three degree options include:

Master of Science in Lighting, the premier master's level degree in the field of lighting, is a two-year, 48-credit program that immerses students in lighting research and design, culminating with an original thesis project under the guidance of a faculty member.

Master of Science in Architectural Sciences with a Concentration in Lighting, a new nine-month, 30-credit degree, is geared toward students who already have some experience in the lighting field and wish to broaden their knowledge in key areas of lighting study.

Ph.D. in Architectural Sciences with a Concentration in Lighting, the highest degree available in the field of lighting, allows students from a wide range of backgrounds to undertake concentrated research in a select area of lighting study.

The LRC administers the lighting graduate degree programs within the School of Architecture at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The LRC is now accepting applications for all three programs. For more information, visit the LRC Graduate Education Web site.
