Ph.D in Architectural Sciences with a Concentration in Lighting: Curriculum

The curriculum for the Ph.D. in Architectural Sciences with a Concentration in Lighting will vary based upon each student's background and previous coursework. Each student entering the degree will formulate an individual plan of study with a faculty advisor. The degree requires that students take a minimum of 72 credits of course work beyond a bachelor's degree.

Plans of study for most students will contain both classroom-based courses and research experiences. For students entering with a bachelor's degree, the program is expected to take four years of study to complete, culminating in a dissertation developed under the guidance of a faculty advisor. The chart below lists the courses that may be required as part of the program. Individual course requirements for students will vary based upon their plans of study.
