Course summary

Our design-based course has a strong emphasis on community participation, and addressing the challenges of uneven urban development, both locally and internationally.

Course description

Urban design professionals are in demand. We'll help you develop design skills that relate to a broader social, environmental and economic context, so that you can link individual architectural projects with overall planning strategies.

We’ll encourage you to critically examine the key urban development challenges that cities are facing today. You’ll explore local urban areas in Sheffield and compare these areas with other UK and international contexts in Europe as well as in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. You'll also investigate the role of designers and citizens in the processes of city making.

Central to the course is a design studio project, and core modules on urban design theory and practice. You can explore a range of themes through optional modules and you’ll take part in study trips and thematic workshops.

We’re one of the UK's top architecture schools. Our international research projects shape policy and address public and professional needs. As a Sheffield student you’ll engage with real issues affecting the built environment. You’ll be encouraged to provide social and environmental solutions to the challenges of our time.
