Along with in-depth profiles of schools and the programs they offer, Grad Degree Search has created the Best Value Architecture & Related Services Master's Degree Schools in New York to help you in your search for the best school for you. Our analysis looked at 8 schools in New York to see which master's degree programs offered the best value experiences for architecture and related services students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

This ranking is not just a list of inexpensive schools. We also consider each school's quality, since we believe a low-quality school may not be a 'bargain' at any price. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

For nationwide and regional rankings, we use out-of-state tuition and fees in our calculations. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
