Focused instruction and innovative curriculum, taught by renowned scholars.

Our graduate students can expect to emerge from their studies with disciplinary expertise and a heightened ability to tackle critical, global issues in the context of the built environment. Study under the guidance of a deeply talented roster of faculty through a variety of graduate degree programs in Blacksburg, Richmond, the greater Washington, D.C., metro area, and online.

Choose from eight Master's degrees, four Doctoral degrees, and 11 graduate certificate programs spanning our four top-ranked schools: the School of Architecture + DesignMyers-Lawson School of Construction, the School of Public and International Affairs, and the School of Visual Arts

Many of our programs are designed with working professionals in mind, while our full-residency options offer intensive study and research with our world-renowned faculty.

In addition to the graduate degrees, our college is involved with many of the Interdisciplinary Graduate Education Programs offered at Virginia Tech. These programs allow you to further tailor your education in areas of concentration that benefit from bringing together faculty from across the university.
