Master of Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 2) MArch

UCA's two-year Master of Architecture (MArch) course will challenge you to design the spaces and buildings of the future and to consider their societal and environmental impacts.

Reflecting the profession’s evolving role, its responsibilities within wider society, and the need for more sustainable professional practice, this course will challenge you to consolidate your architectural experiences, both in education and in practice, while simultaneously questioning your preconceptions of the discipline.

By the end of your studies, you will be able to initiate and deliver projects grounded in design-based research, and continue a process of learning through practice-based experimentation and enquiry.

Career Prospects

Within the degree itself, students are provided with numerous opportunities to learn core employment facing skills, from industry standard software, to teaching of construction regulations, climate adaptation and low carbon building knowledge, to the practicalities of running a business. In addition, a large amount of the school’s learning is delivered via a highly committed and longstanding team of Associate Lecturers, who beyond the school are successful and highprofile Architects and Design Practitioners in their own right. Engagement with these individuals on a regular weekly basis provides all our students with a direct link to the live issues and knowledge of industry and practice. Working relationships established in these moments also provide many of our graduates with a nascent industry network as they depart the school.

Course Details

Our course is uniquely conceived as a forum for architectural investigation and innovation. Design research is at the heart of what we do. In order to engender the necessary rigorous, effective, self-critical approach, the development of effective heuristics as elements of your broader methodological frameworks are an essential element of the course. As an architect, you will be confronted with a wide range of problems across diverse disciplines, requiring clear analysis and decision-making. These core skills are developed, supported and emphasized throughout the course.

The MArch offers an environment geared to the development of approaches and techniques, equipping you with transferrable skills and apposite contemporary architectural knowledge. Over the course of two years, you will develop individual research agendas that inform and activate personal practical projects, within the broad research frameworks of the course and that of your tutor group. Knowledge is built through one to one tutorials, lectures, seminars and applied project exercises; using dialogue and activism to frame understanding of cultural contexts and theoretical positions.
