Course Summary

This post-professional, studio-based course will help you develop an expert approach to architectural thinking and design execution. It offers architectural design studies in relation to public space and the question of civic design. You will explore international perspectives within design, and you will be encouraged to develop exciting design-led propositions that address themes such as the history of cities and city design, environmental sustainability, urban geography, philosophies of political space and the impact of current and future economies.

This qualification will enable you to master specialist design skills beyond generic architectural training, giving you access to increased employment opportunities. Many of our graduates find rewarding work in private design consultancies, local government agencies or environmental organisations in the UK and overseas. Your course will also provide a solid foundation should you want to become an academic researcher in architecture, and you will also have the option to continue your studies and work towards a PhD.
