Professor Hancock has taught architectural history and theory in the College since 1978. He directed the postprofessional Master of Science in Architecture Program from the late 1980's until 2002. After terms as the College's Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies, and Director of the Master of Architecture Program, he returned to full time teaching. Since his retirement into Emeritus status in May of 2015, he continues to teach graduate architectural theory (Phenomenology and Architecture), and to advise graduate students. He is the author of many national and international publications, presentations, grants, exhibits, and awards on topics in architectural history and interpretation.
