Degree Programs - The 2019 Georgia Tech SoA/SCaRP/PubP Career Fair
The School of Architecture
Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS.Arch)
program prepares students for professional graduate level studies in architecture and related fields, as well as providing a variety of career options related to architecture, the building industry, and other design fields.
Master of Architecture (M.Arch)
program introduces students to fundamental principles and precedents of architecture as a discipline and as a profession, and provides both a preparation for practice and a basis for innovation in the areas of architectural history & theory, sustainable building technology (including structures, construction, and environmental systems), media & modeling, and professional practice of architecture. The Master of Architecture degree is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).
Master of Science in Architecture (MS.Arch)
program is for students who wish to pursue advanced studies and research in areas of a particular focus such as Design Computation, Advanced Production, Building Information & Systems, Health & Design, and High Performance Building.
Master of Science in Urban Design (MSUD)
, our newest degree program, is conducted in partnership between the faculties of Architecture and City & Regional Planning. Students with backgrounds in architecture, planning, landscape architecture, and civil engineering who wish to tackle global challenges in redesigning and adapting our cities and suburbs for the 21st century are immersed in a multi-disciplinary curriculum focused on sustainable urban design.
Doctor of Philosophy in Architecture (Ph.D.)
program is one of the largest and most robust Architecture Ph.D. programs in the United States, with nearly 30 students in residence pursuing their Ph.D. coursework or completing their dissertation research. A diverse faculty of scholars and researchers advise students in one of four areas of specialization - Design Computation, Building Technology & Performance, Architecture History Society, and Architecture Culture Behavior.
The School of City and Regional Planning
Master of City and Regional Planning (MCRP)
is a PAB-accredited program that prepares students to excel as professionals capable of understanding and resolving complex urban planning problems. The curriculum gives students both a broad understanding of the urban and regional environment and a foundation of skills needed to plan for this environment. Students’ interests cover a wide range of planning specializations including land use, housing and community development, economic development, transportation planning, environmental and health planning, and urban design.
Master of Science in Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIS)
program is an emerging field of study centered on the acquisition, management, analysis, and dissemination of information that is spatially-referenced to locations on, above, and below the surface of the earth.
Doctoral program in City and Regional Planning (Ph.D.)
offers the reward of conducting research and building theory in an applied professional field. By linking theory to practice, students and faculty in the Ph.D. program explore the most important issues facing cities and regions today. The focus is on building sustainable and vibrant urban environments and communities through interdisciplinary study and research.
The School of Public Policy
Bachelor of Science in Public Policy (BS.PP)
is designed to provide an education that combines strong analytical skills with understanding of a range of substantive policy issues and the political, social, and cultural forces that shape public policies.
Master of Science in Public Policy (MS.PP)
program focuses on public policy issues and implementation in areas where science, research, technology, and innovation are of critical concern. In a technology-driven world, this includes virtually every policy area: the environment, communications, transportation, biotechnology and health, urban development, workforce, education, and more.
Doctoral n Public Policy program (Ph.D.)
prepares students for advanced professional work or for academic careers. The doctorate degree is based on a core curriculum that stresses intellectual and methodological rigor, using the theories and applications of quantitative analysis; political, economic, and organizational analysis; research design and execution. This core is supplemented with in-depth study of particular substantive areas of public policy and focuses on three substantive concentrations - science and technology policy, environmental and energy policy, economic development policy, and information and communication technology policy.
