In the three-year Bachelor of Arts (Architecture) degree you will learn to design architectural projects, big and small, for residential and public spaces in urban, suburban and other contexts. You’ll research historic and contemporary architecture, make precise drawings and diagrams, and use physical and three-dimensional digital models while developing your creative and critical thinking.Our program combines theory classes with practical studios. In the theory classes you will analyse the world in which we live. You’ll apply this knowledge and skills in studios as you design built environments and speculate about future possibilities for human occupation and ecological repair.You will develop your sense of ethical, social and environmental responsibility as you learn to understand diverse cultures and contexts, and apply building technology and environmental science knowledge to solve increasingly complex design scenarios.Our holistic approach to education, including classes in ethics and philosophy, and the opportunity to study a Minor in a discipline complementary to architecture, will extend your learning beyond the traditional architectural curriculum and prepare you for a dynamic professional life. Popular Minors that work well with Architecture are Archaeology, History, Environmental Management and Photography. See the full list of Minors under Program summary below. The freedom to choose a Minor from a complementary discipline allows you to follow your personal or professional interests and increases your graduate employability opportunities.Through this program you will be well placed to make a life-long contribution to the intellectual, cultural and civic life of communities.The Bachelor of Arts (Architecture) program can be a pathway to further study in the Master of Architecture program, and provides a strong foundation to develop the technical and communication skills, professional values and ethical practice required by architecture.
