Graduate Program

General Information

The Department of Construction Science offers graduate degree programs to those who wish to further their educational experience.

The Master of Science in Construction Management degree program at Texas A&M University is an advanced course of study focusing on research in areas related to construction management. All students are required to complete an original research thesis, and pursue publication of that research in a peer-reviewed venue to successfully complete the program and graduate. Thesis topics have historically covered a broad range of interdisciplinary and collaborative processes involved in the design, construction, and management of the built environment.

The Department of Construction Science does not have its own Ph.D. program, however we do have an agreement with the Department of Architecture as well as the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning where a student admitted to the Ph.D. in Architecture, or Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Planning may be supervised by a Construction Science faculty member, conduct their dissertation research on a construction management topic, and customize their degree plan to emphasize construction management. For more information about a Ph.D. in Architecture, see the Department of Architecture Ph.D. program page, for more information about a Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Planning see the Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning Ph.D. program page.

The College of Architecture offers Graduate Certificates in specialized areas that are inherently interdisciplinary. These include certificates in:

  • Environmental Hazard Management
  • Facility Management
  • Health Systems and Design
  • Historic Preservation
  • Sustainable Urbanism
  • Transportation Planning

Graduate students from any program in the university may pursue a Graduate Certificate from the College of Architecture.

The Mays Business School at Texas A&M University also offers a Certificate in Business to non-business graduate students. This certificate provides a general overview of the four major functional areas of business through a set of courses designed for non-business students.
