Our Architectural History, Research and Writing MA degree at London Metropolitan University offers an exciting platform for approaching architecture through various topics and stories, as well as styles and methods of writing: academic essays, short journalist-like reviews, reflections and creative writing.
The interdisciplinary nature of this course creates a strong sense of openness. At our School of Art, Architecture and Design you will enjoy access to a rich variety of lectures, workshops and research activities, such as our weekly research seminars.
After the course
Students from the MA (under its previous title: Architectural Histories, Theories and Interpretations MA) have gone on to teach at higher education institutions. Others have continued their architectural career equipped with insights into the historical fabric of buildings and cities.
