Course content

Blending together art and science, the Architecture MArch aims to extend your knowledge and prepare you for a career in building design.

This course is designed to enable you to develop the creative and professional skills required for a career in architecture. Focusing primarily on studio-based design projects the course should stretch your design imagination, aim to develop your critical thinking, and help and support you with responding proactively to a wide range of complex challenges.

Architecture at Coventry University is taught, using a range of academic and professional sources, as a liberal discipline that aims to be technically, professionally, socially, and environmentally sustainable. Coventry University aim to place emphasis on architecture as a social practice and technical process that purposefully aims to span both science and the arts.

We aim to provide an architectural education that deals with the complexities of architecture itself. Our teaching aims to reflect the nature of contemporary architecture as an international field of creative inquiry and the course aims to incorporate exploration, collaboration and the critical analysis of a range of inputs from differing sources. Our aim is to provide you with the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and confidence necessary for the role of the architect in a modern multidisciplinary building design process.

This is a modular course based primarily on design project work, supported by lectures and seminars that aim to explore the cultural, technical and professional dimensions of architecture.
