The College of Architecture and Design offers professional graduate programs in architecture and an intercollegiate graduate program in landscape architecture. All are fully accredited enabling graduates to pursue licensure throughout the United States.

Each graduate program offers a professional degree (required for licensure), and other advanced degrees with research-focused and design-focused options. The professional degree programs are designed to accommodate students from a variety of academic backgrounds and interests. This includes students who have had little or no previous formal study in either field, as well as students holding undergraduate non-professional degrees in architecture or landscape architecture.

The School of Architecture is proud of its long history and accomplishments and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015. The college resides in a newly furnished award-winning facility, providing studio space for every student, a fully equipped woodshop, and state of the art digital technology, including laser and waterjet cutters, robotics, 3-D digital modeling and fabrication equipment, and an image center for printing and digital reproduction needs. The college has a tradition of using the state of Tennessee as a laboratory for applied research with a direct benefit for the citizens of Tennessee. Facilities for research, creative activity, and service include the Nashville Civic Design Center; the Design/Build/Evaluate Initiative (DBEI); the Institute for Smart Structures; the Governor’s Chair Studio; and a Fablab for digital fabrication located in downtown Knoxville.

The offices of the graduate programs and college administration are located at 224 Art and Architecture Building.
