Architectural Design - F2001

Combine your creative vision and technical expertise to shape the future of society through great design in the built environment.

You’ll study every aspect of architecture in this hands-on, studio-based degree. More than half of your time will be in the studio, collaborating with your peers in small groups to develop design responses to a wide range of social and spatial issues, just like you would in an actual architecture firm.

At Monash, you’ll learn to think beyond the building and learn how to create solutions that transform the way we live, creating spaces, places and communities that improve our quality of life. You’ll gain the skills to make places that are both inspiring and sustainable.

You will also learn how to effectively communicate these ideas to others – whether they’re clients, communities or policy-makers – through drawings, models and live presentation.

In second and third year, you’ll be introduced to architects and designers from across Melbourne and around the world as they pitch ideas for projects you can work on together.

On successful completion of your bachelor’s degree, you can choose to move directly onto the Master of Architecture or the Master of Urban Planning and Design.

Our graduates are vibrant, agile, spatial thinkers with the ability to apply their skills across a variety of creative mediums.

University entrance requirements

Minimum entrance requirements for admission to Monash University Australia.

With a specialist course at Monash you begin study in your area of interest from day one. If you have a specific career goal or more specific field of study firmly in your sights, this may be the option for you. These courses are designed to ensure you have the right combination of skills needed for your professional field.

The course develops through theme studies in Architectural design, Technologies and environments, History and theory, and Communication. These will come together in the form of a graduand exhibition normally developed during the final two studio units in the third year of the course.

Partner with another course

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take up to two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.
