Course description

This course will help you develop a distinctive design practice, underpinned by social dynamics and architectural culture.

You'll explore, challenge and inform contemporary architectural design practice through seminars, research, studio project work and field trips.

Through our live projects you can work with local, regional and international groups on real-life challenges. You could be building, designing urban masterplans or designing in detail. You will specialise in the theory and practice of design to develop the skills and knowledge to be a thoughtful, creative and original practitioner or scholar.

You can take the course as a stand-alone MA or as preparation for a PhD via our PhD by Design programme.

We are one of the UK's top architecture schools. Our teaching staff are doing world-class research, helping to make the school a leader in our field across the UK and internationally. Through our teaching and research, we explore the social, spatial and environmental implications of architecture. As a Sheffield student you will engage with real issues affecting the built environment.


Learning is through studio-based design work with individual and group tutorials, block seminars and workshops, traditional lecture modules, live projects involving real clients and real community projects.


You’ll be assessed on course assignments, design thesis and a dissertation.
