There are two major tracks within the Architecture and Design Research degree, each of which has topical areas. The requirements for the tracks vary slightly, but both provide significant flexibility for each student to develop a plan of study consistent with his or her academic goals. The two tracks are Architecture and Design Research.

Architecture Track

The Architecture track includes Architectural Representation and Education, Architectural History and Theory, Historic Preservation, and Computing and Representation.

The Architecture track will share resources on the Blacksburg Campus and the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center in the National Capital Region. At the latter location, students have the best resources to develop their topics in architectural representation, since they can make use of the many research libraries available in the Washington, DC area, including the Library of Congress, National Building Museum library, American Institute of Architects Library, CASVA, Smithsonian Institution, the Dumbarton Oaks Library and many privately owned architectural archives.


Design Research Track

The Design Research track includes advanced study on Building Science, Industrial Design, Interior Design, and Landscape Architecture. The Landscape Architecture Track includes concentrations in: Design Learning and Professional Paradigms; Regenerative/Ecological Design, Planning and Technology; and Concepts of Community and Place.

The Design Research track is currently located in Blacksburg, VA at the Virginia Tech Main Campus. In this location students have the best resources to develop their topics in design research given that the faculty of the School of Architecture Design have established collaborative relationships with other university centers and institutions.

Ph.D. in Architecture and Design Research:

The Graduate School requires each Ph.D. student to complete 90 semester hours of graduate study and dissertation.
All students, regardless of area of specialization, are required to complete a sequence of specific Architecture and Design Seminars. A two-semester sequence seminar will focus primarily on epistemology and the nature of discipline and practice of architecture, viewed in the context of architecture and the allied fields. Students will also enroll in a continuing seminar course required every semester of residence. In these seminars, Ph.D. students, the School faculty involved with the graduate program, and possible guests present their own research for critical review and feedback. The Ph.D. students in the Architecture track must also pass a test of reading ability in a foreign language related to their selected topics (native languages and English do not fulfill this requirement). Students who are undertaking Ph.D. studies in landscape architecture should include the following courses in their program of study:

ARCH 5045 - Design Research Methodology
LAR 5724 - Scholarship in Landscape Architecture
EDRE 6605 - Quantitative Research Methods in Education I

(or equivalent approved by student's committee).

EDRE 6504: Qualitative Methods in Educational Research I

(or equivalent approved by student's graduate committee).


In addition, all students must complete a special Research Methods course organized by area of specialization. At the approval of the student's advisory committee the course may be also taken in the other area of specialization or outside of the school.
