What is an Architecture Degree?

Architecture is a specialisation preferred by many young people who love solving problems, have a passion for creativity, or an innovative imagination ready to be shown off.

Over the years, it has become a very popular speciality. Young people are aware of the importance and diversity of Architecture, but also of the need for a permanent practice, as most Architecture courses aim at the practical part, to implement feasible structures not only on paper, through sketches, but also in real life.

Architects can choose to grow in all markets or follow a single specialisation, such as Landscape Architect, Resident Architect, Urban Designer, Green Design Architect or Interior Designer, according to their preferences.

Benefits of an Architecture Degree

Usually, a major reason that motivates students to study Architecture is the possibility of having an impact on their community. How do they do this? By exploring the world, analysing people’s work on constructions and looking for answers to identified problems, they become more creative, more open to new things, bringing a new vision to the world.

Critical thinking skills are constantly being developed by graduates who study Architecture because they get the opportunity to visualise the structures before they are made.

Upon completion of studies, there are many possibilities for employment, and salaries can be generous. A particular increase in the employment rate is expected to be in the Green Design field. This requires creating environmentally-friendly constructs that do not harm nature and generate sustainability. 

 

Architecture Degree Structure

Young people must have a university degree in Architecture to pursue a career in that field, that is an Architecture Bachelor or Master of Architecture. Often, undergraduate programmes last 5 years, and Master programmes last between 2 and 3 years, depending on the chosen university and the form of education followed. One notable thing is that Master programmes are often for those who have not completed a Bachelor’s specialisation, and that is why the course component can be similar to the Bachelor’s. As far as Doctoral programmes are concerned, the duration is 3 years, and the architects work on research projects.

At the same time, it should be mentioned that the United States and other territories have introduced a professional license Architect Registration Examination. This is a mandatory exam which tests the candidate’s skills, abilities and knowledge. In the UK, for example, the final registration to become an architect is regulated by the Architects Registration Board.

Although the list of courses may differ from one country to another, some of the most important modules for a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture are Computer Assisted Drawing (CAD), Physics, Visualisation, Science, and Technology. 

Throughout their studies, students can take part in various internship programmes or choose a tutor architect to work with. In this way, they get a better idea of what this profession is about in practice and gain the necessary experience needed for their professional development.

    Opportunities and costs at the same time

    Research capacity is high, academic resource and the scholarship of faculty is outstanding. Price of food in campus cafe is too high for its quality. Lots of opportunities for attending academic events and conferences.

    The peer will pressure you to achieve your best

    LSE LSE LSE, and I have spent my fourth year here. I would say the uni experience is quite different for everyone depending on your degree, and more importantly, the people around you. I am lucky enough to be in the one of the more diligent departments and have made good friends with people of similar interest with me. Even LSE does get terrible reviews on its teaching quality, I don’t think it is true, mostly just uneven. Either people have their expectations too high, or because they are in those ‘poorer quality’ departments. THE PEER PRESSURE IS REAL. As the title of this review says, the pressure is real but it will also push you to your best. You simply can’t ignore everyone else’s strong academic efforts as well as their obsession with career. Nevertheless, you will get support as much as you required. LSE careers does an excellent job in linking you up with people and opportunities. Overall, I give LSE a 9/10 (not like i know what a 10 means :))
