MA in Architectural Design
Start date September
Duration 1 year full-time
The MA in Architectural Design is open to students only as a full-time course. Full-time students are registered for one full year (October to September).
The studio work is an essential part of the MA in Architectural Design. Our thematic studios investigate architectural themes in depth, according to the studio tutors’ research interests. The aim is to consider design within the context of rigorous and innovative research.
The core module Reflections on Architectural Design supports students in understanding the value of architectural research within the contemporary design framework and it relates directly to their studio work.
Students registered for the MA in Architectural Design will attend specific Core Modules. Then, according to their major interest, they can choose one of three options.
Special Design 1 'Live Project' - ARC6991 (15 credits)

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of changes the University will consult and inform students in good time and will take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
Each year we attract excellent national and international postgraduate students to this School who all contribute to a socially vibrant and academically challenging environment. Here, our students share their reasons for choosing this programme and their experiences in Sheffield.
