The College of Architecture, Arts, and
Humanities at Clemson University is accepting applications for assistantships
for the pursuit of the Ph.D. degree in Environmental Design and Planning.
The assistantship provides a stipend of $18,000 payable per year
plus tuition, and may be renewed for up to two years.
The diversity of our faculty, who have advanced degrees in applied economics,
architecture, construction management, civil engineering, history, landscape
architecture, parks, recreation and tourism, planning, political science
and urban geography allows students to pursue a variety of research interests.
The objective of the program is to prepare a new generation of academics
and professionals to deal with the diverse and complex issues relating
to the next round of human development. The program is interdisciplinary
drawing a core from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture,
planning, and construction science. We have identified focus areas of:
Regional & Community Development & Design; Built Environment and
Health; Restoration, Sustainability & Landscape Ecology; Technology,
Materials and Construction Processes. It is expected that graduates
of this program will be well prepared to address increasingly complex issues
relating to human settlement patterns and the built environment. I
hope you will share it with students who are or might be considering application
to a doctoral program for the fall semester of 2008.
Clemson University, the land grant University of South Carolina, has an
enrollment of over 17,500 students of whom over 4,000 pursue advanced degrees
in 74 different areas of graduate studies. Strategically located within
a few miles of Interstate 85, mid-way between Atlanta, Georgia, and Charlotte,
North Carolina, Clemson offers easy access to major urban centers, coastal
areas and the Appalachian Mountains.
