The School is one of five units in the College of Design, Construction and Planning’s active, interdisciplinary environment that seeks to contribute to the University’s goals for pre-eminence. Situated within the north Florida landscape of forests and springs, Gainesville is home to a vibrant intellectual community with diverse cultural and educational resources.
Required: Professional or post-professional graduate degree in architecture, and an articulated research agenda within one of the listed focus areas.
