Masters degrees in Architecture, Building & Planning provide the advanced training necessary to design and maintain a wide range of built and natural environments – from urban infrastructure to famous country estates and national parks.
A range of programmes are available to suit students with different backgrounds and objectives. These qualifications can allow you to specialise after completing a related undergraduate degree, acquire additional accredited qualifications as a professional, or rise to the top of the construction and planning industries with an MBA.
These are highly practical Masters degrees with a range of practical applications. They often grant qualifications necessary for work in chartered professions.
Architecture Masters may be validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) or an international equivalent. Such accreditations will allow you to practice as a professional architect. Similarly, courses in Building Surveying may be validated by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Whatever your course, you’ll have a range of exciting career options available to you with a Masters in this discipline.
You might find yourself in a high profile job designing the landmark buildings of the future, or work to conserve historic properties and their surroundings for future generations.
Or you might help make the wider decisions that affect huge numbers of people and wildlife around the world.
As part of a local planning department or construction company, you could be responsible for ensuring the safety, functionality and sustainability of everything from individual homes to the urban and rural spaces that surround them.
