The college offers four graduate certificates. A graduate certificate is a set of courses that provides in-depth knowledge in the subject a matter. Any graduate student at Texas Tech or professionals outside the University may apply for admission.
The College of Architecture provides a Graduate Certificate in four different specialities:
The certificate programs are administered in four specific ways:
MArch students are required to complete the 12/15 core course hours in one of the offered specialities. MArch graduates that wish to pursue the MS degree after receiving the MArch with a certificate can transfer twelve hours from the certificate specialty into the MS program within the same specialization.
Any student enrolled at TTU in any school or college can earn a certificate, as a Bachelor, Master, or PhD degree candidate under the same guidelines above having been accepted into the certificate program offered by the College of Architecture. The certificate is awarded only after completion of a first degree. Students may take graduate courses as an undergraduate if they are within 18 hours of completion of their degree. BSArch students can take up to nine hours of the certificate specialty within the last eighteen hours of undergraduate study. BSArch students can also take these nine hours as undergraduate electives within the last eighteen hours of BS coursework as counted elective courses, and complete an additional six hours of certification core courses after graduation, to receive the certificate.
