Course summary

Architecture and Historic Urban Environments MA

This Master's programme pioneers a fresh and critical approach to historic environments, promoting architectural and other creative interventions that reinterpret and rejuvenate historic urban environments at all scales. Students work with leading historians, theorists and practitioners to offer creative solutions and critical approaches that enable historic urban environments to thrive, rather than just survive, in a future marked by profound global challenges. This programme links the core research challenge of innovative design with in-depth processes of urban surveying, recording, mapping and analysis. As such, the programme has a strong international component, viewing cities around the world as fascinating laboratories for new ways of investigating and actively engaging with historic urban environments, with London being the prime example. Careers

Graduates of this programme are expected to assume leading roles in design disciplines engaged with historic urban environments at all scales. With experience of different cities and urban conditions in a global context, graduates are highly skilled in working flexibly and resourcefully in different cultural, geographic and professional environments.

Employability

The MA equips graduates with the advanced knowledge and skills required to operate across the areas of urban research, design, management and implementation, combining subject expertise with design creativity, and linking theory, history and practice. Graduates typically pursue careers in professional practices associated with the built environment, as well as policy-making or heritage management, and academia.
