The cooperative study program Master of Arts in Architecture (MAA) at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts run by the Lucerne School of Engineering and Architecture and the School of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geomatics at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland in Basel gives students a broader understanding of architecture in the area of conflict between technology and context. In close proximity to applied research, students experience architecture in a practical and committed environment incorporating a lively mix of theory and research.
The degree program for architects is based on a five-year study program consisting of a three-year bachelor’s program and a two-year master’s program.
