Programme Overview

Programme Syllabus

Programme Syllabus, Master's Programme in architecture and urban design

Course Structure

The first three semesters of the programme are structured in the same manner:

a synthesis course that runs parallel with two seminar courses. The student conducts an independent project during the final semester. All of them are general courses within the programme. The student may choose to complete the synthesis in accordance with one of several design studios.

Seminar courses 1a-3a introduce and explore theoretical concepts, methods and processes such that the primary focus is on the national intended learning outcomes for knowledge and understanding. During synthesis courses 1-3, the student shall apply theory to artistic practice such that her competence and skills improve as described in the national intended learning outcomes. During seminar courses 1b-3b, the student shall engage in individual deliberation and discussion of the artistic practice pursued in the parallel synthesis course in order to demonstrate her/his judgement and approach as described in the national intended learning outcomes.

All instruction is in English.
