Venice provides lifelong inspiration. An uninterrupted tradition links Venice to its School of Architecture.

During the two-year study programme, students acquire all the necessary competencies to become architectural designers and thinkers able to move towards a career in architecture as independent and inventive practitioners. Students acquire the knowledge to enhance their communication skills and gain expertise in the contemporary architectural fields.

The MA in architecture offers students excellent preparation for the changing demands of society, both in the technical-scientific area and the humanities. It trains how to cope with present-day problems related to urban and natural landscapes while focusing on the conservation and transformation of different architectural and urban contexts, with particular attention to environmental, economic and social sustainability.

The MA in architecture prepares students to tackle pressing architectural, urban and environmental issues in the national and international scene.

It offers up-to-date perspectives on architecture integrated with global culture ideas.

The most innovative techniques and methodologies are employed to train generations of digital natives.

This also means providing cross-disciplinary competencies in:
– urban projects and theories on the city, with their related issues on sustainable growth and degrowth;
– Italian cultural heritage and its conservation through regenerative projects that can be applied to other countries and contexts;
– interior and exhibition design – a global asset for today’s architects.

Career opportunities

MA students are highly qualified to hold important positions in both national and international architectural firms. They can work in public institutions, private practices and public companies in the fields of construction, urban and regional planning.

The MA is a prerequisite to taking the Italian State Exam to qualify as licensed architects.
