What will I learn?

Study the Master of Architecture at the University of Tasmania and join an elite group of graduates making their mark in architecture and design.

Course objectives

The Master of Architecture at the University of Tasmania places a strong emphasis on architectural design and the development of personal design approaches that respond to contemporary ecological challenges and social responsibilities.

It is a professional qualification aimed specifically at equipping students with the knowledge, professional skills, and applied understanding necessary to become a registered architect and practise internationally.

Our students enjoy learning in small classes, led by inspirational and catalytic teachers. Defining features of our course include our commitment to:

addressing issues of environmental and social sustainability;
responding to particularities of place and space; and
learning by making that explores relationships between design and making, between material and structural performance, and between scales and modes of production.

The course will introduce you to different modes and methods of design. In your final year you will collaborate with academic staff to develop your own design research project in diverse areas such as digital fabrication, heritage and conservation, learning by making, regional urbanism, and health and place. Upon graduation, your design portfolio should include the evidence you need to get the job you are after. In addition to design proposals it may include built works, peer-reviewed conference papers and journal articles, and curated exhibitions, depending on where your studies take you.
