    About

    The accredited Master of Architectureprogram, when combined with relevant professional experience and successful completion of the Architectural Practice Examination, fulfils one of the pathways to register as an architect in Australia.

    In the program you will study architectural history, theory, research, management and law, and undertake professional practice.

    This is a hands-on course that combines the understandings of design, science, technology, history and culture to ensure you graduate with a well-rounded set of skills. Youll also undertake a major self-directed architectural thesis project in a specialised area of interest, to demonstrate research skills and gain practical experience.

    Students who complete the master degree to a high standard can apply for doctoral-level studies.

    Curtin University is committed to providing a world-class learning experience to our students, and we are proud to announce that in the 2019 URAP World Rankings, we were ranked 2nd nationally, and 24th in the world for architecture.

    Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.

    The future of architecture
