Department of Architecture

Research in Penn's Graduate Group in Architecture is carried out in any one of six fields of specialization. Three are internal to the discipline of architecture (history and theory, representation, and technology) and the others are in related disciplines (landscape architecture, urbanism, and historic preservation). The dissertation is undertaken after the completion of required and elective courses, and examinations in history and theory, the literature of a student's field, and foreign languages. Much of the scholarship in the program seeks to provide a theoretical context for contemporary practice.
