The Masters in Architectural and Urban Design (formerly Urban Studies) at University of Brighton brings critical debate together with creative practice, helping to develop you as one of those designers who will plan the urban environments of the future. You will engage with critical thinking and research based on the analysis of cities and will develop your own projects, speculating as to how cities will evolve and be used in the future.
If you are looking to change or develop your career, or wish to extend your knowledge in both architecture and design, the MA Architectural and Urban Design gives you a deep understanding of the issues involved in contemporary practice and allows you to evolve your own specialist work. Our former students have gone on to be professional architects, academics and urban designers.
You will benefit from a supportive studio environment, two field trips and a variety of workshops and seminars. Your lecturers are expert practitioners in architecture and urban design as well as experienced teachers.
Work is of a highly experimental nature that stretches your imagination and critical ability. You will produce innovative portfolios, critical writing and develop awareness of issues in global urban environments, expanding your knowledge beyond the usual architectural boundaries.
