About

The MArch in Architectural Studies programme from The Glasgow School of Art is research and project driven with multi-disciplinary input in the areas of Urban Design and Creative Urban Practices, Urban Building, Computer Aided Architectural Design, and Energy and Environmental Studies.

Overview

Key facts

The programme begins with a series of core lectures and seminars, balanced by focused reading of key literature related to the four areas of enquiry. This enables all of the students on the programme to gain a multi-disciplinary perspective and provides ground for shared discourse.

The Core Lectures and Seminars form the background and basis for the preparation of two research papers and for identification and development of the the individual project.

The Master of Architectural Studies at The Glasgow School of Art taught programme is not an ARB/RIBA Part 2 accredited programme. The Diploma in Architecture programme is ARB/RIBA Part 2 accredited.
