Course content

Our MArch course emphasises design as a research practice. It understands the architect as someone whose cross-disciplinary role enables them to draw upon knowledge from various related disciplines, to develop effective strategies and models for sustainable practice. This may be within the context of the production of buildings, the spaces between them or the urban contexts in which they occur.

On this course you'll be able to consolidate your architectural experiences, both in education and in practice, whilst simultaneously questioning your preconceptions of the discipline.

By the end of the course, you'll be equipped to adopt a critical position within the profession and wider society. You'll also be able to initiate and deliver projects which are grounded in design-based research, and continue a process of learning through practice based experimentation and enquiry.
