University of Kent: Architecture and Urban Design (Canterbury and Paris)
|Institution||University of Kent View institution profile|
|Department||Kent School of Architecture and Planning View department profile|
The MA in Architecture and Urban Design (MAUD) proposes a particular perspective of the city, combining the strength of architectural history and theory with the study of the contemporary city, to provide an understanding of architecture and urban design that addresses the dynamic conditions of cities today.
You examine the trajectory of cities’ development, particularly in relation to the Enlightenment, industrialisation, the role of Modernisms and the conditions of the 21st century. In doing so, you draw from the wider context of humanities, cultural studies, the visual arts, drama, film and other media that influence the formation of an urban landscape.
A cross-cultural, interdisciplinary programme, you spend your first term at our Canterbury campus with full access to its excellent academic and recreational facilities. In the spring term, you relocate to the Paris School of Arts and Culture where you study at the Columbia Global Center (known as Reid Hall) in a historic corner of Montparnasse. You visit Paris in the autumn term, where you meet our Paris staff and are taken on a tour of the city. We offer advice and support to help you relocate to Paris.
