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 reltaed to construction management. Students who wish to pursue a Master of Science in Construction Management can expect to obtain a practical study of the interdisciplinary and collaborative processes involved in the design, construction, and management of the built environment, by conducting an extensive research project. Graduate students must choose the thesis option only, and publish it in a peer-reviewed venue in order to successfully complete the program and graduate.
Although the Department does not have a Ph.D. program, the Department does have an agreement with the Department of Architecture to admit and supervise students declaring an interest in Construction Management into the Ph.D. in Architecture program. A Ph.D. student in Architecture with an emphasis in Construction Management is supervised directly by two faculty members (co-chairs). One of the co-chairs is a Graduate Faculty in Construction Management, which assures that the Ph.D. student is overseen by faculty members in Construction Management for continuous evaluation of their progress in terms of both research and teaching. For more information about a Ph.D. in Architecture, see the Department of Architecture Ph.D. program page.
The College of Architecture offers Graduate Certificates in specialized areas that are inherently interdisciplinary. These are Certificate in Environmental Hazard Management, Certificate in Facility Management, Certificate in Health Systems and Design, Certificate in Historic Preservation, Certificate in Sustainable Urbanism, and Certificate in Transportation Planning. Graduate students from throughout 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.
