Architecture and Urban Design - MA
The MA in Architecture and Urban Design (MAUD) is a wide-ranging mainstream Master's program in architecture that gives you an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspective on contemporary architecture and urban design. The program informs you about the latest knowledge of architecture and urban design in order to prepare you to become a successful professionals working on a global scale.
You are taught how to combine academic analysis with the development of creative and intellectual skills. We regard theory and practice of architecture as equally important, and believe that joint effort and excellence in both areas are necessary for communicating architecture and urban design competently and successfully. You are encouraged to develop your creative and imaginative abilities; to produce ideas and undertake work that conveys your understanding of architecture and cities in fresh and effective ways.
This is a versatile Master’s qualification for architects, urban designers, surveyors, historians, landscape architects, theorists, engineers and other related professionals involved with planning and design of contemporary cities, as well as graduates interested in pursuing further postgraduate studies and an academic career.
This program is taught at our Canterbury campus. There is also a version of this program which allows you to spend a term in Paris.
