Program description

Master Degree Programme in Architecture

The English-taught MA provides education and training for internationally oriented architects.

It gives students an excellent preparation for the changing demands of society, both in the technical-scientific area and the humanities. It teaches how to cope with present-day problems related to urban and natural landscapes. It focuses on the conservation and transformation of different architectural and urban contexts, with special attention paid to environmental, economic and social sustainability. MA Architecture prepares students to tackle pressing architectural, urban and environmental issues in the national and international scenes. It proposes updated visions of architecture and integrates them with ideas from global culture. It employs the most innovative techniques and methodologies to train generations of digital natives.

This also means providing cross-disciplinary competences in:

  • urban projects and theories on the city, with their related issues of sustainable growth and sustainable decrease,
  • Italian cultural heritage and its conservation through regenerative projects that can be applied to other countries and contexts,
  • interior and exhibition design,
  • a global asset for today’s architects.
