Notre Dame launches new Master of Architecture Program

11 October 2018

A unique combination of post-graduate study and practice-based experience.

An innovative, new Master of Architecture program has been launched by The University of Notre Dame Australia.

The Master of Architecture, will begin in Semester One next year with a two-year program open to graduates holding a bachelor degree in architecture, interior architecture or an equivalent qualification.

The program is designed specifically to allow students to work part time in the field while undertaking supervised placements with Notre Dame’s professional partners.

Another key feature is a dedicated Design Studio located on the University’s Fremantle Campus in which students will participate in project-based learning that have social and environmental impact within the City.

“The Master of Architecture will benefit from the distinctive elements of the Notre Dame experience: small class sizes; research-led teaching, high employability through engagement with industry, professional skills development; and ethical, values-driven curriculum,” said Professor Sarah McGann, Dean of Notre Dame’s School of Arts and Sciences.

“The Design Studio environment provides a platform for students to apply knowledge, creativity and strategic problem-solving skills in the built environment.

“Many of the key challenges of contemporary society – such as sustainability, housing affordability, ageing-in-place and community building – will underpin the studios within the program,” added Professor McGann.

Entry to the program will be based on a portfolio interview.
