Study Overview

The Department of Architecture at the University of Pretoria offers a unique interdisciplinary environment in which to study towards professional registration in three spatial design disciplines: Architecture, Interior Architecture and Landscape Architecture. 

The BSc Architecture degree provides students with the opportunity to explore different scales of spatial design, to prepare them for possible specialisation at postgraduate level. Our curriculum, which introduces ecologically responsible and inclusive design principles, involvement in community co-design projects and digital communication skills as themes running through all three years, ensures our students are ready for the world of work in the 21st century and its unique challenges.

Professional postgraduate honours and master’s degrees lead students towards registration as Senior Technologists/Designers or Professional Architects, Interior Architects or Landscape Architects. Our honours year offers students a number of interdisciplinary design studio electives working with partners in the private, public or non-profit sector, while the masters year is an individual exploration of a research theme, culminating in a design project.

The Department also offer postgraduate research opportunities in all three disciplines to candidates interested in pursuing a masters or doctoral degree in any of our seven research focus areas. From 2022, we will also offer a structured pathway for practitioners with the old five year B Arch degree to complete a research MArch based on their practice experience. Read more
