16 PhD Programs in Architecture

As the highest level of education possible, earning a PhD requires three to four years of intensive research on average. Students pair with an academic supervisor who is an expert in their chosen field to help them create their thesis, which will be reviewed in an oral viva voce.

What is a PhD in Architecture? As one of the oldest disciplines, a PhD program in this field revolves around the planning, design, and construction of buildings. This field incorporates numerous principles from engineering so students can learn how to build structures designed to stand for decades or centuries and withstand weather, high winds, and other natural forces. In addition to aesthetics and art, architecture includes other practical construction disciplines, such as plumbing, electrical engineering, and physics.

Students who choose to work toward a PhD in Architecture benefit by developing a strong set of skills that will be useful once they enter their career. Engineering essentials are passed on to students, as well as planning, organizing, and leadership capabilities.

The expenses students face for earning their PhD vary on many factors, from the school and country of study to the number of years their chosen program requires. A minimum of two or three years is typical.

The most common application of a PhD degree is entering academia. This means that most students who graduate with a PhD in Architecture become college professors or researchers to further develop architectural understanding and knowledge. While this is the most common application, it is also possible to pursue traditional careers with this kind of degree. You could be an architect and work either independently or with a firm.

There are many options for your PhD program. Think about whether you would enjoy studying online, in a local school, or elsewhere in the world. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
