Master the art of architecture with a Master’s degree

The University of Canberra’s Master of Architecture has a unique status as the only postgraduate architecture program in Canberra, itself an internationally recognised model design city. This professionally accredited, two-year course focuses on the contemporary issues informing urban architecture and promotes the processes of urbanisation as a laboratory for architectural research.

Accredited by the Australian Institute of Architects and the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia, our course’s ‘design studios’ will arm you with the professional and intellectual knowledge you need to practice architecture on a global scale, fine-tune your expertise in related careers such as in industrial design, urban design or heritage management or allow you to pursue a PhD in alternative subjects, including architectural history, urban planning or digital architecture.

Study a Master of Architecture at UC and you will:

  • understand analytical and theoretical approaches to site, context, program and technologies
  • propose formal, spatial and programmatic resolutions for major urban scale projects
  • demonstrate an understanding of the complex and challenging social, ethical, environmental, political and regulatory contexts within which architectural practice is carried out
  • demonstrate an advanced ability to respond to and develop a client brief, scope of work and detailed design proposals up to start of construction
  • debate the importance of the interconnections of architecture with its cultural, theoretical, technical and historical contexts.
