This degree will set you on the path to a fulfilling career as an architect. It’s a stepping stone to Griffith’s Master of Architecture degree, which provides the academic qualifications needed for registration as an architect. You’ll combine classroom studies, studio work, fieldwork and practical experience to learn about urban systems, public places and all aspects of the built environment. You’ll develop your design and creative problem-solving skills and learn how to develop designs that meet aesthetic, functional and user needs. This degree draws inspiration from our unique Gold Coast city environment and the challenges of building resilience for the future in an urban coastal context. A focus on sustainable design in tropical and subtropical climates will prepare you for work in Australia and the Asia–Pacific. In your third year, you’ll gain practical experience by completing a supervised industry-based design project. For more course information, visit the Bachelor of Architectural Design at GU.
