The Division of Architecture at the University of Oklahoma is committed to educating students of diverse backgrounds and interests through graduate level studies in architecture.


About this Degree

Focused on advancing architecture and society through education, scholarship, and service, the graduate degree programs provide a creative and challenging forum through which students engage environmental and social issues, thereby actively shaping the profession of Architecture. Our graduates are known for their exceptional design abilities as well as their critical problem-solving and leadership skills.  Established on a core foundation of ethics and sustainability, our graduate programs enable and equip students to deal with complex real world issues that go beyond the realm of design.

Located in Norman, Oklahoma with a branch campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the architecture program at the University of Oklahoma draws from the region’s rich cultural legacy. Our graduate degree programs in Architecture offer students opportunities to learn and work in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary environment through coursework, faculty-led research projects, and student-led associations. As the Flagship Research Institution in the State, faculty and students are collectively engaged in the production of new knowledge through research and creative practices. The OU College of Architecture is home to five disciplines connected by a focus on the built environment: Architecture, Construction Science, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, and Regional and City Planning. Graduate students are encouraged to work with faculty from across the college to shape an individually tailored degree program.  This focus on both broad collaboration and specialization is combined with an emphasis on the hands-on pursuit of creating and making, which reflects the OU approach: our students dream big and work hard to produce credible solutions to urgent global and local problems.
