About Architecture at University of Liverpool

You can personalise your studies for the MA in Architecture (MA/Arch) with a number of specialisms. These include history and theory of architecture, architecture and the visual arts, digital techniques in architecture and design, and sustainable design.

We've designed the programme for graduates wishing to specialise in architecture and for architects in practice wishing to develop their skills. You'll study a range of academic, research-based topics in specific areas that reflect your experience and interests.

This 12-month full-time or 24-month part-time programme comprises four core modules (total 60 credits), up to four optional modules (total 60 credits) and a research-based dissertation/thesis (total 60 credits) which you'll complete over the summer.

Please note, this programme is designed for those wishing to undertake postgraduate study in Architecture, but who do not require British Architectural accreditation status.  This programme does not carry RIBA/ARB accreditation. Please see information on the BA and MArch degrees for our RIBA/ARB accredited programmes.
