Program Description:

The only NAAB-accredited architecture program in Tennessee, the UTK Graduate Architecture Program offers both professional (2 and 3.5 year) and post-professional (1.5 years) degrees at the masters level. The program offers four certificates in areas of concentration: Sustainability, Conservation and Stewardship, Urbanism, and High Performance Buildings. 50% of our students are out-of-state, many of which take advantage of the Academic Common Market: Kentucky, West Virginia, Arkansas, Mississippi. For the 2012-13 academic year, the program awarded the equivalent of $1,000,000 in fellowships, graduate assistantships, scholarships, and awards to its 60+ students -- and average of more than $16,000/student. The core values of the Graduate Program in Architecture are based on a design-centered curriculum that promotes personal development, ethical imperatives, critical thinking and ecologically sustainable practices. These values are expressed in an education that challenges students to expand their awareness, to become leaders, to master the discipline and to engage real world problems in their cultural and social contexts with the responsibility of stewardship for the built and natural environment. The program is committed to preparing our students for leadership roles not only within the profession, but also within the broader communities they join and influence. With a 10:1 student/faculty ratio in design studios and seminar courses, the UTK Master of Architecture Program maintains one of the lowest student/faculty ratios in the country, assuring a high level of teaching and fostering a constructive learning environment in which education and training are balanced between theory and practice.
