Architecture

This design-based course, open to architects and designers, gives you a strong platform from which to develop your own MA thesis. This course builds on the established strengths of The Cass in the two major disciplines, their common interest in spatial design and a critical theoretical framework. It is open to architects and interior designers and is taught in parallel with the Professional Diploma in Architecture. The course offers a rare opportunity for high-level joint study. The different elements are coherent and testing. The course is design-based and research-orientated. It enables you to focus your skills and develop excellence in your work. The coursework provides a strong design platform from which you can develop a thesis creatively and intellectually. The main subject areas are in design, history and theory, each taught through a wide choice of tutors, studios and interest groups with a strong emphasis on self-directed study.
