Why study the Master of Architecture?

The Master of Architecture (MArch) is the second stage of obtaining a professional qualification in Architecture. It builds on the core skills developed in the BArchDes. Architecture is a dynamic and demanding profession, making a positive contribution to the shaping of our built environment and our culture. The essential skill of an architect is the ability to design buildings and spaces with an inherent concern for human living and working environments.
