Monash University Architecture School

The Monash Faculty of Monash Art Design & Architecture (MADA) is one of Australia's leading educators in art and design, and is one of the few institutions in Australia that offers all major art and design studies within the one faculty. This allows you to explore an exciting range of creative intersections, from areas as diverse as fine and applied arts to industrial design, interior architecture, visual communication and multimedia and digital arts.

Monash University offers the Bachelor of Architectural Design and the Bachelor of Engineering and Architectural Design at the undegraduate level, and the Master of Urban Planning and Design and the Master of Architecture and the postgraduate level.

The Master of Urban Planning and Design course offers an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach, engaging with the urban planning interests in the Department of Architecture as well as other research interests in Monash University, such as the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities, the Monash Sustainability Institute and the Monash Infrastructure Institute.

The course is open to applicants from backgrounds as diverse as architecture, landscape architecture, engineering, economics and geography. On graduating you’ll be equipped to seek employment in government departments and agencies, and in planning practices in Australia and around the world.

The Master of Architecture is structured in three parts:

Part A. Advanced architecture and design studios
These studies will focus on advanced concepts and skills relevant to architecture design. Through project based studio classes you will gain exposure to leading design practices. In conjunction with studios, you will select from a range of advanced architecture studies units, which are complementary depth units. These will introduce you to the methods and tactics of architectural design research and engage with the multidisciplinary socio-cultural, political, economic, historical, theoretical and technical dimensions relevant to architecture and urbanism. Studies culminate in the final year in a self-directed project.

Part B: Applied professional practices
These studies focus on the core business and regulatory aspects of practice as an architect within the context of multi-disciplinary collaborations and evolving construction methods and practices.

Part C. Electives
These studies provide complementary depth units and enable you to tailor your studies to individual interests. You may select units from either architecture-specific advanced architecture studies depth units or other units offered by the University.

As a student you will undertake high-level study in specialised areas of architecture, from housing and urban design to digital practices. Through project-based design studios you will gain exposure to leading design practices. An integrated program of study will allow you to select from a range of design studios in conjunction with advanced architectural studies - complementary depth units that introduce students to the methods and tactics of architectural design research and engage with the multidisciplinary socio-cultural, political, economic, historical, theoretical and technical dimensions relevant to contemporary architecture and urbanism. You will also develop knowledge of architectural practice within the context of multi-disciplinary collaborations and evolving construction methods and practices. Your studies will culminate in the final year with a self-directed project.
