Fremantle , Fremantle ,Australia

Master of Architecture

Architecture enhances people’s lives through the creation of meaningful human environments. Many key challenges of contemporary society—such as sustainability, housing affordability, ageing-in-place, city living and community building—often involve spatial issues. Architecture applies a holistic way of thinking and acting to combine creative design processes and technical skills with understandings of human, cultural and environmental issues.

Notre Dame’s new Master of Architecture program provides a unique education, in the heart of Fremantle. In ethically, socially and environmentally responsible architecture where you are part of a small cohort of creative, critical–thinking students, embedded in architectural practice.

The strength of this program lies in its unique combination of the following:

  • a small diverse cohort
  • high-quality teaching approaches
  • tailored practice placements
  • socio-spatial design studios that tackle contemporary issues
  • working within a studio-based, creative-practice research culture
  • situated and engaged within the Fremantle community.

The Design Studio is the central component of the curriculum where you apply your knowledge, creativity and strategic problem-solving skills in the design of built environments.

During practice placements, you apply your professional and technical learning in local practices under the supervision of a Registered Architect.
The curriculum focusses on diverse graduate employment opportunities and is mapped to the Australian National Standard of Competency for Architects.  In addition to gaining professional competencies, you develop highlevel strategic research agility, resourcefulness and design innovation that opens up opportunities within traditional and non-traditional career pathways.

The personal experience of studying architecture at the Fremantle Campus is enhanced by the historic, artistic and architectural context of the city. Within the program there are opportunities to undertake studies in the Kimberley, Sydney and overseas.
