You will receive a rounded professional architectural education with strength in design-research. Your studies include sustainable design, urban design, history/theory and design practice. The research-based approach to architectural design in this degree will help you develop the capacity to pose original questions and to investigate, analyse and appraise current information and understandings. Research-led design will underpin career-long self-directed learning of a critical-reflective nature.
Attendance for all students is full-time mainly on campus, with some off-campus activities including: on-line delivery for aspects; integrated practice-learning; site and practice visits; and, elective national and international field studies. Academic staff-student contact is typically 15-18 hr per week.
Work integrated learning is established in the core course 7606ENV Architecture Professional Practice 2. Additional Work integrated learning is also available through the Listed Elective 7900ENG Work Integrated Learning, available in consultation with the Program Director. Work integrated learning activities integrate theoretical learning with its application in the workplace. Such inclusion in this program demonstrates Griffith University's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.
Our graduates have been employed in various architecture related organisations including private practice, consulting firms and in local and state government. You may choose to become a 'general practitioner' or you will have the option to specialise in a building type, in an aspect of building design or construction procurement or with further experience and study you can specialise in urban design or research.
The Master of Architecture is recognised by the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia, the Board of Architects of Queensland, the Australian Institute of Architects and the Commonwealth Association of Architects.
