MArch Architecture and Urbanism at University of Hertfordshire

The MArch Architecture and Urbanism course at the University of Hertfordshire encourages students to design urban developments that tackle social and ecological issues in cities.

School: School of Creative Arts, University of Hertfordshire
Course: MArch Architecture and Urbanism
Location: Hertfordshire, UK
Course dates: September 2023 to May 2025
Application deadline: 25 January 2023

The Master of Architecture and Urbanism course is grounded and future-focused, shaping students who care for people, place, materiality, and truth. If you're motivated by social and ecological issues, this is the course for you.

The degree is driven by architectural and urban future developments, from the garden city movement to smart cities and resilient communities.

The programme takes ideas from alternative future visions and the uncontrolled and unhealthy growth of cities in a harmonious environment.

It also pulls from radically innovative social and economic models of sustainable growth, land ownership and local community creation.

Our location provides a local lens where you'll examine global issues such as urbanisation, the state of regional towns and megacities, ecological architectures, the future of the housing industry, and the architectures of resource transition.

You'll engage with design problems and challenges, considering scenarios past, present and future, and learn to develop architectural processes and propositions that consider ecologies and environments for the benefit of human and non-human users.

This programme is designed to meet the needs of advanced graduates and young professionals aiming to become registered architects or urban designers, and we're focused on helping you gain the skills and confidence to play a key role in transforming the architectural field.
