This course combines a professional course; that is, an architect's registration board/Roayl institute of British architects (ARB/RIBA) part 2 course with a Cambridge Master’s degree in philosophy. The course is a hybrid of independent research through design and a structured technical learning resource. It is designed for mature students that join the programme with a distinct area of interest and provides guidelines to their scientific research, access to specialists of various fields relevant to their studies, and a matrix of deliverables that foster an informed body of work underpinned by a sophisticated set of design and presentation techniques. The course provides advanced teaching, research and practice opportunities in environmental design, including the social, political, historical, theoretical and economic aspects of architecture, cities and the global environment.
