This programme is offered by the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA).
The MA (Hons) Architecture in Creative & Cultural Environments is a non-accredited degree route and allows students to combine a general education in architecture with a choice of subjects in other disciplines. Students are taught together with the students in BA/MA Architecture for the first two years and then specialise in third and fourth year.
Architecture students will need to purchase specialist equipment, which may include their own drawing board and laptop computer. In addition, the annual expenditure on drawing and model-making materials is, on average, £200. An annual facilities (studio/bench) fee is charged to all students. In 2010 this was £50. Field trips and excursions are undertaken as part of the degree programme. A letter will be sent to accepted students outlining estimated costs for the forthcoming academic year.
The first and second years introduce the key skills required for studying architecture. You will take courses in architectural design, technology and environment, architectural history, cultural studies, art and design and a choice of an elective. At the end of this stage you will choose to study for a BA or MA (Hons).
As Year 1.
You choose from a range of subjects according to your interests. Topics include architecture, architectural history, history of art and landscape architecture.
