Course content

This programme is intended for students who seek professional training in the history and theory of architecture. It offers the historiographical perspective and methodological tools required for advancing architectural history through a substantive work of scholarship. You will benefit from the environment of rigorous intellectual exchange supported by an extensive network of architectural history staff, a rich programme of architectural history lectures and workshops, and a dynamic atmosphere of student research leadership.

Through a combination of supervised original research and thesis writing with optional internships and other professional opportunities, you will gain a deep knowledge of architectural history as a field, as well as spectrum of investigative and rhetorical skills. You will mature as a scholar and thinker within an exceptional community of architectural inquiry—one of Britain’s largest and most broad-ranging centres for the study of architectural history.
