Birkbeck's MA History of Architecture explores built and designed objects, their social, economic and political contexts, their connections to culture and thought, and their urban and landscape settings. This course will train students at a high level to look at, think and write about and research architecture and its fascinating histories. Students will discover varied approaches to the study of architecture, and the course allows students to focus in depth on areas and periods that they find particularly interesting. Through option modules, students can choose to study the early and modern - including contemporary - periods and range across a variety of geographic places. Students will improve their visual and spatial acuity, deepen their knowledge of architecture's histories, and hone their ability to understand and contribute to stimulating critical debates. Students will also improve their research skills. Graduates can pursue careers in the heritage and museums sector, media and education. Possible professions include heritage professional, museum/gallery curator, arts administrator, or advertising account executive. This degree may also be useful in becoming a community arts worker, multimedia specialist, or higher education lecturer.
