University is accepting applications for five three-year
assistantships for the pursuit of the Ph.D. degree in Planning, Design, and
the Built Environment. The fellowship provides a stipend of $18,800
payable per year plus tuition, and may be renewed for up to two years.
I would like your help in locating superior students who might be
interested in this opportunity for support of their doctoral
studies. 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 the future of our built environment. 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 2012. While we have a rolling admissions
Process, we will begin reviewing applications around the 5th of January
