One of the premier design research institutions in the world, the Texas A&M College of Architecture strives to remain at the fore-front of research, teaching, professional education and outreach associated with built and virtual environments.
The College of Architecture administers six undergraduate degree programs - each fully accredited at the highest possible level - through the departments of Architecture, Construction Science, Landscape Architecture & Urban Planning, and Visualization. The College Of Architecture experience at Texas A&M University is more than the classes you take. It's about what you learn. The hands-on experiences you have along the way...and what you do beyond the classroom as you apply your knowledge.
Think of them like academic clubs… small academically-focused groups that enhance your experience at Texas A&M.
Each undergraduate student is required to spend one semester away from campus during their junior year of studies, either through the college's or another university's study abroad program, a service-oriented program or a professional internship at a firm engaged in a business represented by the departments in the college.
Through the college, students have an opportunity to study in venues worldwide, gathering life-changing experiences that will make them better citizens of the world. We offer a number of faculty led programs that provide for fall, spring, and summer study abroad opportunities. Our study abroad programs are fundamentally multidisciplinary (Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Design, Planning, Construction, Art, and Culture) and open to students of our peer institutions at national and international level.
Service learning is when your class engages with local organizations to address human and community needs. By acting as consultants, students apply what they have learned in the classroom to address social issues and challenges within various organizations.
Many courses expand learning beyond the classroom to personally experience the topics covered in coursework.
Students can learn more about their respective fields of study, network, server the community and have fun through local, national and international student organizations and honor societies with chapters at the Texas A&M College of Architecture. Organizations' aims range from serving students pursuing specific degrees plans to more interdisciplinary interaction.
