The Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning places a high emphasis on its research activity. We have a vibrantly diverse community of scholars and practitioners, many who have taken national and international leadership roles in their fields.
The Master of Philosophy (Architecture) allows a candidate to undertake research and advanced specialisation in any of the areas of scholarship and research undertaken by the Faculty. This degree may be undertaken in any one of the Faculty's research areas and may include the requirement for some coursework (up to a maximum of 24 credit points). The program is generally completed in four semesters full-time (2 years) or eight semesters part-time (4 years). The final thesis for the Master of Philosophy (Architecture) is expected to be in the range of 30,000 – 60,000 words.
