The Master of Architecture program at the University of Sydney provides a dynamic studio-based learning environment that produces graduates who are forward thinking, collaborative and at the forefront of the changing architectural profession.  


The Master of Architecture program at the University of Sydney operates around a series of studios that require students to engage at a graduate level with projects that emphasize research, design and vision. 

Student work is defined by the rigours of industry practice and surveys the social, environmental, practical and aesthetic needs of the brief while working within the wider context of architectural theory and philosophy. You will develop expertise across design, technology and theory that will form the basis of your approach and response to architectural projects and practice. There is one studio per semester as follows:

  • Urban Architecture 
  • Sustainable Architecture  
  • Digital Architecture
  • Graduation Studio

The first three studios lead to the Graduation Studio in the final semester of study that is based around a largely self-driven project. Students also undertake subjects that explore the historical, technological and theoretical aspects of architecture and investigate the critical issues facing contemporary architectural design.

Career Pathways

Becoming a registered architect will open the world to graduates as the work of architects is no longer confined by geography. Opportunities for graduates lie both within Australia and overseas with a number of our past students having great successes internationally. By engaging with the environment, community and needs of clients and stakeholders, work as an architect can have a profound effect on people's lives around the world.
