This course emphasises practical experience through projects and design studios, and encourages creativity within a vigorous design culture. You develop adaptable and resilient capabilities to design, think critically, effectively communicate and collaborate to realise your ideas in diverse situations. The architecture major engages with the design, theory and practice of making spaces and environments for human activity. You learn to create environments with positive impacts on human health, environmental quality, social relationships and urban systems. On completion with GPA 4.50, (or better), you can progress to a two year Master of Architecture and gain the required practical experience to become an architect. The course also enables you to incorporate knowledge and skills from other study areas into the degree.
