The MArch is designed to equip you with the skills you need to succeed in your chosen career. The architecture programmes at Northumbria are all framed in relation to a common ethos and approach.
Contextual Awareness: The exploration and importance of place, reading the context and being responsive to site as a precursor to change and adaptation.
Environmental Literacy: In response to the climate emergency, environmental literacy will be embedded in every module assignment and assessment.
Design Led: Creativity is central to architectural practice and is developed through studio practice as a research method.
Authentic Learning: Projects will engage with real-world issues, learning through doing, and working beyond the confines of the institution.
Constructive Alignment: Connecting strands of knowledge to form an integrated approach to the subject and developing holistic architectural propositions.
