Course summary

Course description

MA Architecture and Urbanism allows you to study, and conduct in-depth research into, the influence of global cultural and economic forces on contemporary cities.

Throughout the course, you will explore the design, functioning and future of urban situations in written, drawn and modelled work that builds on the legacy of twentieth-century urban theory and is directed towards the development of sustainable cities.

The course is therefore perfect preparation for careers in roles associated with the development of sustainable urban spaces.

In certain circumstances, this course can be approved as prior learning for our Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Part 2-accredited MArch Architecture.

You will benefit from the expertise of specialist practice and research-active lecturers, who provide a rich and stimulating environment in which to study architecture.

What's more, you'll be inspired by the world-famous city of Manchester - the industrial revolution birthplace turned 21st century metropolis - and its vibrant, contemporary and innovative architecture scene.

Manchester is a showcase for recent regeneration and historic context, much of which has been designed with the involvement of our current students and graduates.

The city recognises the value of high-quality design, together with innovative and pragmatic approaches to resolving practical issues.
