Architectural Design - F2001
Monash Architecture is all about the bigger picture, and how architecture integrates with urban design and urban planning.
Examine buildings within their larger urban or regional environment and in the context of a changing planet. Develop future-forward skills and knowledge to contribute to the common good and to a sustainable and equitable world.
In this studio-based degree, you’ll study all aspects of architecture. For more than half of your degree you will be participating in studio learning, guided by industry experts or academics and collaborating with your peers in small groups to develop responses to a wide range of social and spatial issues. Studio learning replicates the way many architectural and design practices operate.
You’ll also learn how to visually communicate your ideas and responses – to clients, communities and/or policy-makers – through developing skills in visualisation, model making, digital fabrication and live presentation. You will learn to use the latest architectural software to ensure that you are prepared and ready to begin your professional practice.
There is no need to have previously studied any design subjects as our first year has been developed to ensure all students gain the necessary foundation skills in freehand and computer-aided drawing to be successful in the degree and in architectural practice.
On successful completion of the bachelor’s degree, you can move directly into either the Master of Architecture or the Master of Urban Planning and Design. Students who have successfully completed the Bachelor of Architectural Design at Monash University will automatically progress to our 2-year Master of Architecture.
To qualify as a registered architect, you’ll need to complete the Master of Architecture, which is accredited by the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA) and undertake two years of professional practice.
Work in a diverse range of roles from urban design and planning consultant, sustainable design consultant, disaster relief specialist, historic building conservationist or interior design consultant, to theatre and set designer, community development officer, property developer, town planner, architectural writer and commentator or urban informatics designer.
