MA in Urban Design
"Urban Design - the knowledge and skills necessary to design and deliver better urban places."
The MA Urban Design is jointly run by the School and the Welsh School of Architecture and more information about this course is available at MA in Urban Design - Welsh School of Architecture.
The MA Urban Design uses design practice, theory, development and control practices to inform design processes, and uses studio teaching focused on local development possibilities to develop creative, practical and sustainable solutions to a range of typical urban design problems.
The course seeks to produce students who can:
Think three-dimensionally and creatively manipulate space at the intermediate scale between architecture and planning;
Analyse the qualities of localities and places and respond to complex and often contradictory community aspirations;
Critically appraise development (built and proposed) and make suggestions for improvement, and develop improved policy and control practices;
Conceptualise and draw development proposals at different scales from the territorial to the block scale;
Be able to recognise and add quality in all development situations;
Test developments for their sustainability, economic viability and constituency;
Understand how to approach implementation through inter-professional and inter-agency collaboration and consensus building.

The MA in Architecture and Urban Design (MAUD) is a wide-ranging mainstream Master's programme in architecture that gives you an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspective on contemporary architecture and urban design. The programme informs you about the latest knowledge of architecture and urban design in order to prepare you to become a successful professional working on a global scale.
You are taught how to combine academic analysis with the development of creative and intellectual skills. We regard the theory and practice of architecture as equally important and believe that joint effort and excellence in both areas are necessary for communicating architecture and urban design competently and successfully. You are encouraged to develop your creative and imaginative abilities; to produce ideas and undertake work that conveys your understanding of architecture and cities in fresh and effective ways....
