With extensive input from professionals and the chance to work on authentic projects across a diverse range of sites, this course is designed to give you the full range of skills you’ll need for a career in architecture.
You will cover the five themes of architectural design; communications, history and theory, technology and environment, and practice management and law. You’ll have the opportunity to take part in a European field trip which will help you to assess historical and contemporary influences on architectural design. You’ll complete two major projects, one rural and one urban in context, allowing you to develop a personal approach to architectural design. You’ll also learn about environment and systems integration, constructional, structural design, environmental and sustainable design, and cultural context.

The skills developed through the architecture degree not only reflect and support the attributes expected of a graduate of architecture, but are also transferrable into a wide selection of alternative professional and academic pathways. The context-focused approach of our teaching is reinforced by linking the use of regional sites with relevant international field study visits to the major architectural capitals of Europe. This validates the transferability of your knowledge and skills to the world arena.
Most graduates from Northumbria have secured key roles in architectural practices locally, nationally and internationally. Others have transferred their skills to a range of professions including construction, property development, visualisation, games design, urban design and manufacturing.
