Program description

Architectural History, Research and Writing MA (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Architectural History, Research and Writing MA degree offers an exciting platform for approaching architecture through various topics and stories, as well as styles and methods of writing: academic essays, short journalist-like reviews, reflections and creative writing.

The course is taught by tutors with an active interest in architectural research. It provides a space for thinking about and interpreting architecture in the rich context of allied arts and humanities; fine art, design, film, music, poetry, anthropology, philosophy and ecology all play a part in the interdisciplinary discourse.

The interdisciplinary nature of this course creates a strong sense of openness. At The Cass you will enjoy access to a rich variety of lectures, workshops and research activities, such as our weekly Cass Research Seminars.

You will have the opportunity to engage and collaborate with students from other MA programs such as our Architecture RIBA 2 MArch, Architecture MA, and Architecture and Urbanism MA. You will also reap the benefits of the commonly taught dissertation module, in which you will be taught together with our PhD, MPhil and other MA students.

Admission requirements

You will be required to have:

  • A 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in architecture, or a subject discipline related to architecture, the arts or humanities

A full online university application will need to be submitted, which includes a detailed statement to support your application for the course.

Consideration will be given to those without standard entry qualifications who have gained non-certified experience through prior learning, provided evidence is given that this is equivalent to the entry qualifications for a postgraduate course.
