Students use critical and analytical skills to develop an advanced understanding of themes, concepts and research methods relating to the theoretical, historical, social and cultural aspects of architecture and urban environments. Students will be expected to select from a range of research topics not previously studied and identify appropriate research methods and methodologies to theoretically underpin their research and inform their ways of thinking. Students will be expected to demonstrate architectural and English language proficiency. A fieldwork component is dependent on the focus of the research.
