Professors Bilello, Peters, Watkins, and J. P. White; Associate Professors Aranha, Coombs, Davis, Driskill, Giaccardo, Hill, Jones, Louden, Mross, and Perl; Assistant Professors Beltran, Buelinckx, Haq, MacBurnie, Mead, and Shacklette; Instructor Gallegos; Lecturers Faulk, Flueckiger, Jaddo, Martin, Powell, and Stephens.

The college supervises the following degree programs: ARCHITECTURE, Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Master of Architecture and Master of Science in Architecture; LAND-USE PLANNING, MANAGEMENT, AND DESIGN, Doctor of Philosophy.

The college awards a 5-year Master of Architecture, a professional degree; and a 4-year Bachelor of Science in Architecture, a nonprofessional degree.

The M.Arch. professional program consists of two parts: an undergraduate component consisting of 131 credit hours in courses at the undergraduate level, and a graduate component consisting of 42 credit hours in courses at the graduate level. Students will be evaluated near the end of the undergraduate level program to determine if they should proceed to the graduate level program. The review will consist of a combination of grade point average (GPA) on the last 60 hours, graduate record examination (GRE), letters of recommendation, statement of career goals, and a portfolio of work. Students wishing to pursue the M.Arch. must apply to the Graduate School and meet admission requirements for both the Graduate School and the college. The Master of Architecture degree is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. Before completing the third year and core curriculum, the student will make a decision to continue in the Master of Architecture professional graduate program or change his or her program to the Bachelor of Science in Architecture nonprofessional undergraduate program.

Combined degrees are available as follows: A dual degree (a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering) is offered with the Department of Civil Engineering. This degree program requires a different core curriculum. Students wishing to pursue this program must make their decision before entry into the first year of study.

A second dual degree program (Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in General Business) is offered with the College of Business Administration. This program is designed to provide a broad background for a variety of careers in business, government, architecture, and building-related industries with particular emphasis on developing analytical tools and skills with managerial perspectives, thereby enhancing worldwide career opportunities. It is preferable for students to make a decision regarding entry into one of these programs as early as possible.

A third dual degree program (Master of Architecture and Master of Business Administration) is also offered with the College of Business Administration. Course requirements are listed in the accompanying tables. Further information on admission to the M.B.A. program is available through the College of Architecture and the College of Business Administration Graduate Services Center. It is preferable for students to make a decision regarding entry into one of these programs as early as possible.

The 4-year B.S.Arch. consists of 146 credit hours at the undergraduate level. This degree gives students knowledge of and opportunities in architecture, the building industry, and related fields as well as the possibility to continue in graduate education.

Degree requirements for these programs are given in the accompanying tables.

Elective hours may be used to study a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary offerings such as landscape architecture, interior design, business administration, and arts and sciences. Recommended topics include global and social issues, critical theory and writing, and creativity.

The College of Architecture encourages students from other disciplines to enroll in architecture courses to obtain an understanding of human behavior and the environment. Many courses in architectureespecially those in urban design and planning, history of architecture, architectural delineation, and furniture designare available as electives to students majoring in other disciplines. Consent of the instructor may be secured in lieu of the professional prerequisites listed. Students majoring in other academic disciplines may complete minors in architecture with approval of the dean.

Currently, both international and domestic off-campus programs are offered to enrich student experience. Summer programs in Montreal, Canada and Vicenza, Italy, as well as other affiliated international programs enable students to study abroad expanding their opportunities to experience culture and design. Similarly, a summer program is conducted in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The spring Architour offers students a chance for concentrated study of American architecture and urbanism. Students are encouraged to participate in at least one of these options during the course of their study.

The College of Architecture is affiliated with the American Institute of Architects and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards; many faculty maintain memberships in the American Institute of Architects and are certified by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. The college is a supporting member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture, the National Architectural Accrediting Board, and the Architectural Research Centers Consortium. The college supports the Intern Development Program, the American Institute of Architecture Students, Tau Sigma Delta (national honor society in architecture and allied arts), and maintains the Knights of Architecture, a service organization.

The Architectural Research Center provides faculty and students with additional opportunities for study and research. The center conducts planning projects in the southwest and in foreign countries and fosters exchange programs with foreign universities.

The mission of the College of Architecture is to educate broadly its students to become highly competent architects who will be leaders in the building industry as well as in society. Opportunities responding to the needs of a complex social environment and important global issues are available. Relying upon a sound historic perspective, the college offers instruction with a broad vision of architectural practice and research which recognizes the need for poetic expression in a highly technical world.

The college is fully committed to the research orientation of the university.

Mandatory Accreditation Statement. The National Architectural Accrediting Board provides the following statement: "In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. that are accredited by The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes two types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture and the Master of Architecture. A program may be granted a five-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on its degree of conformance with established educational standards.

Masters degree programs may consist of a preprofessional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree, which when earned sequentially, comprise an accredited professional education. However, the preprofessional degree is not by itself recognized as an accredited degree."

The Bachelor of Science in Architecture is a nonprofessional degree and is not accredited by NAAB.

Core Curriculum Requirements. The university has established Core Curriculum requirements for all students. A listing of these requirements appears in the All-University Programs section of the catalog.

Entrance Requirements. In addition to general university requirements, the following high school subjects and credits must be completed for unconditional admission in the Architecture program:

Mathematics: Algebra I, II, Geometry (1 unit each), Trigonometry/Precalculus, or Calculus (1/2 unit);

English: English I, II, III, IV (1 unit each);

Science: Physics or Chemistry I (1 unit) (C E dual degree requires both);

Foreign Language: 2 years.

In addition to the above, studies in world history, geography, music, and art are strongly recommended. See admission requirements for Texas Tech University.

Transfer Students. All students admitted to Texas Tech must meet appropriate requirements for the Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP). Refer to admission requirements in this catalog for information relating to the TASP program. Students transferring from other institutions must submit a portfolio of previous work in architecture and a transcript of completed courses for evaluation and placement. Transfer students will not be admitted to the programs in architecture unless they have at least a 2.50 GPA, not less than a 2.50 average in architecture or architecture related courses, and not less than a 2.50 average for the last semester attended prior to transfer. The same requirements apply for students changing majors into architecture from within the university.

Entrance into the Master's Level. To be considered for entrance to the master's level of the professional degree program, the student must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA for the last 60 hours of the undergraduate program, an acceptable GRE percentile score in all areas (verbal, quantitative, and analytical), letters of recommendation, statement of career goals, and submit a portfolio for review. Students in the dual degree M.Arch.-M.B.A. program must also meet the requirements of the College of Business Administration before advancing to the master's level. Upon entering the graduate program, a student must adhere to the policies of the Graduate School which are set forth in the Graduate Catalog.

Grades of C. A grade of C or better is required for all courses included in the architecture degree plan. In the college, a C is equivalent to a grade of 70-79. A 3.00 GPA is required to enter the graduate program.

Academic Status. The academic information section of this catalog gives specific information regarding academic status. Students on scholastic probation or scholastic suspension should familiarize themselves with those regulations. At the graduate level only one (1) semester of probation status is allowed before academic suspension.

Class Attendance. Students in the college are expected to attend all scheduled class meeting times and activities. Absences in excess of those stipulated in each individual course syllabus will result in an F. Refer to the university's policy, procedures, and dates on dropping a course. See your academic advisor for additional information.

Student Projects. The College of Architecture reserves the right to retain, exhibit, and reproduce work submitted by students. Work submitted for grade is the property of the college and remains so until it is returned to the student.

Pass-Fail Grading. Only general elective courses may be taken for pass-fail grading. Architecture majors may take no more than 9 hours pass-fail to satisfy degree requirements.

Electives. Students may select electives to broaden their educational experiences. Students in the fourth undergraduate year of study may not take a freshman-level elective course without approval from the associate dean. Courses for required elective hours must have an identified knowledge content, intellectual rigor and documented testing and evaluation of knowledge gained.

Writing Intensive Courses. The architecture degree programs require writing intensive courses ARCH 4381, 5362, 5365, 5382, and 5395. An additional writing intensive elective is required. A student may select from ENGL 2311, 3365, 3366, or an approved course.

Internship Program. Each student is encouraged to participate in the professional internship program. The program provides opportunities for professional experience in some of the nation's leading architectural firms.

Counseling and Advising. Faculty members assist students in career counseling and guidance. Advisement for course registration is provided by the Academic Programs Office staff.

Application for Degree. The Bachelor of Science degree candidate must file an "Application for Degree" with the Academic Programs Office at least one year before the anticipated date of graduation. Subsequently, the student will receive a list of courses and be apprised of the number of grade points that are lacking.

In making this application, students must indicate the year's catalog under which they plan to graduate since they must meet all of the requirements of a specific year's catalog. This must be a year during which the student is registered in the College of Architecture. See also "Uniform Undergraduate Degree Requirements" in this catalog or "Degree Programs" in the Graduate Catalog depending on the degree being awarded.

Catalog Selection. Students will use the catalog issued for the year in which they were first officially admitted to the College of Architecture or may elect to use a more recent catalog. However, if they later transfer to another institution or another college at Texas Tech, and wish to return to the College of Architecture at Texas Tech they will follow the current catalog curricula in effect when they are readmitted. A catalog expires after seven years.

Correspondence Courses. Major or minor courses may not be taken by correspondence. A correspondence course cannot be used for graduation when completed during the student's final semester or summer term.

Course Load. The normal course load for a semester is 16 to 18 hours in undergraduate work. Approval from the Academic Programs Office is required for a course load of more than 18 semester hours (8 hours for a summer term). Correspondence courses are included in the student's course load, as are courses taken concurrently at other institutions.

Students who are employed for more than 20 hours each week should limit their semester hour enrollment.

Ineligible Registration. The College of Architecture reserves the right to prevent from entering or drop any ineligibly registered student from a course for reasons such as unapproved overloads, unapproved repeated courses, lower division-upper division rule infractions, and lack of prerequisites. Courses taken ineligibly may not be used in the student's degree program.

Transfer Courses. All transfer course work to be taken at any other institution must receive evaluation and approval from Academic Programs Office. The student must provide sufficient evidence of equivalency.
