Architecture Studies

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

The creation of a building or space that is not only aesthetically appealing, but is also structurally sound and within legal parameters involves planning and design work from someone familiar with the principles of architecture.
