Graduate Certificates

The College of Architecture currently offers five graduate certificates and one undergraduate certificate. These certificates are formal awards granted by the College with approval of Texas A&M University and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

The certificate credential indicates that a student has completed a program of courses consisting of at least 15 credit hours in a concentrated area. When a student meets all the requirements of the certificate, the credential will appear on their transcript. At this time, all College of Architecture certificates are degree-dependent, meaning that students must be currently enrolled in a Texas A&M degree program in order to be eligible for a certificate .
