The Architecture course at University of Tasmania aims to foster a profound and enduring engagement with architecture as profession, discipline, and culture.

Project-based design studios form the core of the program. These emphasise professionalism, critical and rigorous design thinking, knowledge of contemporary and emergent theories, technologies and practices, and the development of skills for a diversity of future careers in architecture. Students gain experience tackling a range of challenging design problems, including those relating to urban futures, social and environmental responsibility, and complex buildings.

Studios are complemented by units in Professional Practice, Advanced Technologies, and Design Research, with a choice of options to enable tailored pathways through the field. The program culminates with a research-led final project nurtured by professional and discipline leaders in small studio groups.


The accredited professional education provided by the Master of Architecture degree equips graduates with the required competencies to become core members of the architectural profession, working in firms and organisations involved in the definition, design, realisation, and stewardship of buildings, urban spaces, interiors, and the broader built environment.

More broadly, the lateral problem-solving skills and creative powers developed through the degree – including design thinking, spatial intelligence, visual literacy, digital fluency, and effective communication skills – are highly transferable and resistant to automation, empowering graduates to navigate a future economic landscape disrupted by technology. Ultimately, it is the values of critical thinking, civic responsibility, ecological consciousness, and aesthetic imagination instilled through our architectural education that furnish the fundamental capacity for reshaping the world for the better.

Graduates of the Master of Architecture degree are globally mobile, equipped to embark on stimulating careers across industries and fields both established and emerging, often located at the intersection of design and the environment. These include:

  • Architectural design and construction
  • Interiors and environmental branding
  • Lighting and acoustic design
