College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities


The College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities offers a unique combination of disciplines to unite the pursuit of knowledge with practical applications for building a better and more beautiful world. Masters degrees are offered in Architecture (MS and M Arch); City and Regional Planning; Construction Science and Management; Digital Production Arts; English; Historic Preservation; History; Landscape Architecture; Real Estate Development; Resilient Urban Design; and Visual Arts.

The College also offers three doctoral programs: Digital History; Planning, Design and the Built Environment (PDBE); and Rhetorics, Communication and Information Design (RCID).

Courses are offered in art and architectural history, geography, languages, literature, performing arts, philosophy, religion, and women’s studies to provide electives for students in other areas.

Graduate students in the School of Architecture can study at the Clemson Architectural Center in Charleston and at our international locations in Italy and Spain: the Charles E. Daniel Center for Building Research and Urban Studies in Genoa, and the Barcelona Architecture Center. Lee Hall, which houses the on-campus home of the School of Architecture, the Department of Art and the Nieri Family Department of Construction Science and Management is designed to promote collaboration between these professional programs, enabling students to work collaboratively to address contemporary issues of design, planning, development and construction. For students seeking a doctoral degree, the School of Architecture offers the Doctor of Philosophy in Planning, Design and the Built Environment. Our programs are national leaders on issues of sustainable design and environmentally conscious building.

Humanities houses programs leading to the Master of Arts in English; Master of Arts in History; the Doctor of Philosophy in Digital History and the Doctor of Philosophy in Rhetorics, Communication and Information Design, which has a high placement record for jobs following the PhD.

Graduate students of the arts can choose between two terminal Master of Fine Arts programs: MFA in Visual Arts and MFA in Digital Production Arts. Visual Arts students are provided the opportunity to achieve a high degree of professional competence in the studio area of their choice of drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, photography or sculpture. The Digital Production Arts MFA program is a partnership with the School of Computing for artistically talented students to develop their skills for the animation, visual effects and electronic games industries.

Across the College, faculty research activities have been funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the Bingham Trust, the American Council of Learned Societies, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Transportation and Department of Defense.

 

NOTE: A student’s advisory committee aids in developing an individualized curriculum. A student’s personal GS2 Plan of Study documents their specific curriculum as determined by the advisory committee and consistent with the program guidelines, as well as Graduate School and University policies. For more information, see the most current graduate program handbook(s) and the Graduate School Policies and Procedures handbook, which include important information related to degree and program requirements, and may contain more updated policy information than what appears in this catalog.
