About

Overview

Why study this MA in Architecture at London Metropolitan University?

The MA in Architecture at London Metropolitan University provides you with a practical and theoretical understanding of both architecture and interior design, presenting you with a rare opportunity for high-level study of both these areas.

The course is open to graduates of architecture, interior design and other closely related subjects and is taught in parallel with the Professional Diploma in Architecture RIBA 2.

Drawing upon the established strengths of The Cass in architecture and interior design, you’ll explore their common interest in spatial design and work within an established critical theoretical framework.

You’ll learn from a wide selection of tutors, studios and interest groups, and there will also be a strong emphasis on your own self-directed study.

Many graduates of our Architecture MA course go on to either continue or start work within architecture, interior design or fields that are connected to both.

If you want to develop your research further, then you’re encouraged to apply and undertake a PhD at London Met.
