The Bachelor of Architecture (Hons) program prepares students for the practice of architecture.

Architecture is the art and science of designing space. This program is for you if you have a creative aptitude for architectural design, the ability to implement your designs in practice, are interested in the artistic and cultural aspects of society, and have an aptitude for technical and managerial challenges.

A five-year program, it covers topics such as the study of design, the history of theory and criticism of architecture, the environment, construction, visual communications and digital, computer applications and law.

The learning environment in Architecture is different from that of most degrees. We learn in our studios, in our gallery, through conversations, through vertical projects, and by drawing and doing things. Most of your student experience will focus on studio-based design projects, allowing you to design buildings and explore the urban and rural context. Throughout the program, there is a strong emphasis on studio work and exploration of the student’s understanding of architecture.
