Historical study of the built environment is a key research strength in architecture at the University of Edinburgh.
With six leading, full-time, architectural historians, ESALA offers both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in the areas of architectural history and conservation studies.
In accordance with the research specialisms of our academic staff, the study of architectural history at ESALA has a focus in the following areas: Britain (especially Scotland) and the British colonial world (18th and 19th centuries), Germany and Central Europe, European and North American Modernism, the history of public housing, Medieval and Renaissance Italy, the history of landscape, and the history of construction technology.
We welcome research proposals from prospective students in any of these areas. For further information, please visit our postgraduate studies section:
