Architectural Studies BA (Hons)
The Architectural Studies BA (Hons) is an alternative graduation pathway of study for students who have initially enrolled onto the Architecture BA (Hons). This option allows you to explore further opportunities within architectural education, and is a pathway for you to make your mark within the built environment sector. You are able to transfer from the Architecture BA (Hons) programme after the first or second year of study. In the architectural studies route you will be able to study various modules including building economics, urban design and cities, issues in environmental sustainability, strategic design thinking, architectural advocacy and project management. The Architectural Studies BA (Hons) is distinguished from the Architecture BA (Hons), which is a PSRB controlled award.
This degree option is ideal for those who wish to work in other areas of the built environment and the economy, and will prepare you with wide range abilities to function within and outside of the built environment. The strength of the Architectural Studies BA (Hons) is its multi-disciplinary approach, allowing you to seek and adopt informed positions in a range of built environment debates.
Previous graduates have found jobs in diverse areas of the built environment from site architects, project managers, various roles within the planning and the construction industry, practice managers in architectural firms, positions in central and local governments, or undertake Masters and PhDs degrees in a variety of pathways including product design, interior or construction law.
