Our architecture program will prepare you for your place in the world, not just the local region
Architecture focuses on design and creative problem solving skills - learning how to develop and present architectural solutions that meet user, functional, technical and aesthetic needs now and for the future.
You will be exposed to both international and domestic practices, learn in small group practice led design studios, have access to dedicated state-of-the-art studios, and have the opportunity to undertake industry experience and international field trips.

Bachelor of Environmental Design/ Master of Architecture
From a student of architecture to Associate Director within five years, Andrew Brewer attributes his soaring career at Baurling Brown Architects to the skills he learnt at Griffith. 'The undergraduate and postgraduate degrees equipped me not only with the technical skills in developing architectural proposals, but also, personally, with the ability to perceive the built environment and appreciate the positive impact architecture has on people all over the world.'
The Master of Architecture is a professional accredited program providing the academic pathway to registration as an architect. As a graduate, you will be qualified to work in Australia and overseas. With your technical knowledge and creative visual thinking skills, you will be qualified for a career as an architect or built environment professional. With your design skills, you can also find employment in a range of creative roles in fields like urban design, interior design, virtual environments, graphic design and the film and games industries.
