Summary

This Masters course will delve into the history of English architecture. You will explore a range of building styles, from vernacular dwellings to the Country House, and learn how they were shaped and developed by the societies surrounding them.

Throughout the course you'll broaden your expertise of key historic buildings and the wider environment, from c.1000 to 1950, and focus on significant periods: Medieval and Early Modern, the Neo-Classical Tradition and Victorian, all the way to more modern architecture.

You will learn how to recognise archetypal styles of buildings and how these were shaped by technological, social, economic, geographic and cultural forces. You will also learn different methods of investigation; and the relevance of specific buildings today, drawing on examples from across the country.
