At Thomas Jefferson University, students do not just learn about designing and building a better world. They do it.

It all begins at Jefferson’s College of Architecture and the Built Environment — a division committed to educating the next generation of leaders to spearhead a sustainable future through an emphasis on social equity, sustainability, and design excellence.

The full Jefferson experience, which entails plenty of opportunities in the urban lab of Philadelphia, ensures this. Jefferson actively forges partnerships with many major corporations, local communities, and nonprofit organizations –– adding to an already expansive lineup while providing learners with a broad range of real-world projects. However, there’s plenty to discover within the university itself.

While the college offers academic programs at every level, these spaces are especially beneficial to incoming master’s students, and aspiring postgraduate students with their sights set on a PhD. Where better to prepare for doctoral success than in a state-of-the-art research center? Jefferson has plenty –– each of which is ready to welcome ambitious scholars.
