Architects and the designers of our surroundings are the driving force behind the design and development of our built environment.
Whether they are designing new buildings, giving a new lease of life to existing ones, developing urban spaces, landscapes or contemporary interiors, architects have a profound influence on all our lives.
The Kent School of Architecture (KSA) offers a two-year full-time ‘professional’ Master of Architecture (MArch) which gives exemption from ARB/RIBA Part 2 on completion, but, for entry, requires exemption from ARB/RIBA Part 1. The School also offers a research degree programme (PhD) and taught Master’s programmes in Architecture and Cities, Architectural Visualisation and Architecture and Sustainable Environment. These programmes also benefit from expertise in urban studies, animation and art within other schools at Kent.
This programme gives you a cross-cultural and interdisciplinary perspective on contemporary architecture and urban design; understood as an intersection between architecture, cities and the environment. You are taught design skills in relation to the arts, design practices and latest architectural theories. Through analysis, design and modelling of the conditions of cities’ life, the programme teaches you how new design proposals and heritage buildings can facilitate regeneration and ecological development of cities.
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.
