We are ranked among the nation’s top public universities, and we’re on an aggressive path to join our peers in the country’s Top 25.
Our students build a strong foundation through challenging coursework, ongoing academic support, and countless chances to learn outside the classroom.
Four learning programs – Architecture, Interior Design, Graduate Architecture, and Graduate Landscape Architecture – provide students opportunities to connect with classmates, develop valuable skills, become involved in campus life, and ultimately enjoy success as a UT student. We are preparing students to be leaders and innovators in the design disciplines, business, and beyond.
Our growing honors programs, including the prestigious Chancellor’s Honors and Haslam Scholars, give students the chance to create their own interdisciplinary experience and open doors for research and intellectual exploration well beyond our campus. Our students have gone on to enroll in top graduate programs, become Rhodes Scholars, live and work abroad, and become leaders of communities across the United States.
Our faculty is composed of passionate instructors and world-renowned scholars. Faculty and staff work together to help our students succeed and set a high standard of excellence in teaching, research, and service.
As one of the nation’s leading public research institutions, we are committed to providing our students with the highest quality education and the best overall student experience possible. The opportunities we provide for our students reflect this dedication to research, academics, and personal growth.
