Architecture - F6001

Architecture

Professional entry master degree

The Master of Architecture is ideal for students who have completed undergraduate studies in architecture and want to be equipped to address the growing challenges of the evolving built environment. Graduates will be trained as integrated urban professionals to have the vision to design progressive architecture that responds to the dynamic needs of contemporary society and speculates about the future of our built environment.

The Master of Architecture enables graduates to meet the academic requirements leading to registration as Architect in Australia.

As a student you will undertake high-level study in specialised areas of architecture, from housing and urban design to digital practices. Through project based design studios you will gain exposure to leading design practices. An integrated program of study will allow you to select from a range of design studios in conjunction with advanced architectural studies - complementary depth units that introduce students to the methods and tactics of architectural design research and engage with the multidisciplinary socio-cultural, political, economic, historical, theoretical and technical dimensions relevant to contemporary architecture and urbanism. You will also develop knowledge of architectural practice within the context of multi-disciplinary collaborations and evolving construction methods and practices. Your studies will culminate in the final year with a self-directed project.In order to register as an Architect, graduates must also complete two years of professional practice and pass the AACA Architectural Practice Examination.
