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.

Double degrees

Studying a double degree is a great way to increase your career options

Study architecture at Griffith

Our architecture degrees are distinctive in their emphasis on urban design principles and putting the environment into architectural design. You will study in smaller classes, enabling more focused engagement with teaching staff. We are ranked in the world’s Top 100 (top 2%) by the prestigious QS World University Rankings by Subject for Architecture/Built Environment.

You’ll combine classroom studies, with practical studio work and fieldwork to gain real skills while you learn about urban systems, public places, designing buildings and all aspects of the built environment. Study with peer mentors and exhibit your work to industry professionals to help ensure you succeed.

Matthew Boyle

Master of Architecture

As a winner of the Griffith University French Embassy Award with his design for a Gold Coast cruise ship terminal, architecture student Matthew Boyle revelled in an amazing student experience. After travelling to France and enjoying a tour of Paris, Matthew spent two weeks working with students at the Strasbourg National Institute of Applied Sciences. The award gives Griffith architecture students the opportunity to work on a real project request from the City of Gold Coast, and the prize is a fantastic French connection.
