About

The Architecture and Urban Design programme from University of Kent - Paris School of Arts and Culture proposes a particular perspective of the city, combining the strength of architectural history and theory with the study of the contemporary city, to provide an understanding of architecture and urban design that addresses the dynamic conditions of cities today.

Overview

You examine the trajectory of cities’ development, particularly in relation to the Enlightenment, industrialisation, the role of Modernisms and the conditions of the 21st century. In doing so, you draw from the wider context of humanities, cultural studies, the visual arts, drama, film and other media that influence the formation of an urban landscape.

A cross-cultural, interdisciplinary Architecture and Urban Design programme from University of Kent - Paris School of Arts and Culture, you spend your first term at our Canterbury campus with full access to its excellent academic and recreational facilities. In the spring term, you relocate to the Paris School of Arts and Culture where you study at the Columbia Global Center (known as Reid Hall) in a historic corner of Montparnasse. You visit Paris in the autumn term, where you meet our Paris staff and are taken on a tour of the city. We offer advice and support to help you relocate to Paris.

Careers

Our Master’s programmes have been devised to enhance your prospects in a competitive world. Professionals in the architectural, planning, environmental design and conservation fields who develop higher-level skills, accredited by relevant bodies, will find themselves well-placed to progress in their field. Our students have gone on to work for major public agencies and universities, as well as leading practitioners in the private sector.
