The Master of Architecture (Professional) and Urban Planning (Professional) from University of Auckland will give you a sound platform for the realities of contemporary practice.

In less time than it takes to complete the two degrees separately, you will gain the qualification necessary to practice as a professional architect, and the skills to shape the economic, social, environmental and cultural development of our urban spaces.


Successful completion of a Master of Architecture (Professional) and Urban Planning (Professional) qualifies you to work as an architectural graduate, with the goal of gaining full professional registration, or as an urban planner with enhanced design skills. You can also contribute in a variety of roles in a private or public organisation, as well as parallel roles within the industry.
