Ph.D. Program in Landscape Architecture and Architecture

The Ph.D. Program in Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign is a unique, jointly administered program in which students may choose to focus in either Architecture or Landscape Architecture, or work in both. Interdisciplinary study and cross-disciplinary inquiry occur in a congenial work environment, drawing upon a wealth of faculty and resources in a range of campus units.

The School of Architecture and the Department of Landscape Architecture are two of the oldest and most distinguished professional degree programs of their kind in North America. Both benefit from internationally distinguished faculty and from one of the largest academic libraries in the world, with more than ten million volumes and state-of-the-art electronic access to archival and data base information, as well as access to major collections in nearby cities.

The downtown centers of Champaign and Urbana, and also the university itself, offer restaurants, cafes, theaters, clubs, museums, shops, and a wide range of cultural events. At the same time, our handsome campus is calm and peaceful, an excellent place for research, study, and contemplation.

The West Urbana neighborhood just adjacent to the campus, where many students and faculty live, was recognized by the American Planning Association as one of the 10 Great Neighborhoods in America.
