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.
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 focussed 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 whilst 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.
Bachelor of Urban and Environmental Planning/Bachelor of Science
During his time at Griffith, Ethan Bowering won the Prime Minister's Australia Asia Award, travelling to Hong Kong to study, and interned in Beijing with the United Nations Environment Programme. After graduating, he landed a job as a policy officer for the Commonwealth Department of the Environment. Now he's completing a Master of Public Policy at the prestigious University of Cambridge, thanks to receiving a Cambridge Australia A P Platt Scholarship. He hopes this qualification will prepare him for a leadership role in environmental policy in Australia.
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 here 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.
