Pathway details

An Architecture degree sets you on the path to conceptualise and design buildings, urban configurations and landscapes in response to economic, technical and social needs and desires. At UWA you’ll benefit from intensive teaching with a low student-to-staff ratio in design studios. You'll also graduate with the skills to build 6-star+ rated housing, a growing need in today's environmentally minded society. Practical studies are supported by investigating design communication, sustainable design and historical, theoretical and ethical aspects. Students can also exhibit their work at the Cullity Gallery.
