Course summary

Course overview:

Our MA Architecture course enables you to develop an individual approach to spatial design within a stimulating, creative and supportive environment.

Our MA Architecture course is a research-focused programme that advances your knowledge of built and occupied space. For us, architecture is not only concerned with buildings and construction details, but also how people perceive and understand space at a fundamental level. Through engagement with 1:1 experimentation both digital and analogue in workshops and studio, and therefore increasing your specialist knowledge, you improve your ability to manage and deliver practical projects whilst engaging with technology and experimental design.

Our students speculate upon possible outcomes and alternate realities that have grown from contemporary technologies; we do so through an assimilation and expert application of making skills and artistic craft knowledge, which is readily accessible in the wider UCA community.

You'll have the opportunity to undertake individual thematic investigations which will incorporate prototyping, experimenting, re-designing and crafting. You will be expected to demonstrate expert knowledge of your chosen field of interest and complete mastery of your fabricated outcomes. At the end of the course you'll become responsible for the design, construction and public exhibition of a full scale piece of work that will act as a unique expression of the expertise you've developed with us.

Our School of Architecture maintains strong relationships with the professionals and organisations in the industry, and our course team are well-placed to provide you with industry links that could lead to further experience and career development and higher level study such as PhD.
