Research profile

The MSc by Research in Reflective Design Practices is focused on the styles of thinking and action associated with the practice of architecture and the forms of knowledge that result.

The programme is designed for experienced practitioners and designers who have assembled a significant body of built or designed work, and have a record of critical and creative engagement with the discipline of architecture.

The programme offers you an opportunity to audit, review and critically reflect upon the nature of your practice. Your work to date serves as a platform from which to negotiate possible future directions of your practice. The programme is underpinned by a wider commitment to the idea of the reflective designer and practitioner as a basis for creatively engaging with the rapidly changing contours of contemporary society.

Programme structure

The programme provides research training (research design, representational media, design strategies, data collection and analysis) that enables creative and critical engagement with architectural design. It is designed to be flexible enough to be tailored to individuals' needs, and to offer preparation to advanced level research.

Training and support

All of our research students benefit from ECA’s interdisciplinary approach and all are assigned two research supervisors. Your second supervisor may be from another discipline within ECA, or from somewhere else within the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences or elsewhere within the University, according to the expertise required. On occasion more than two supervisors will be assigned, particularly where the degree brings together multiple disciplines.
