The Master of Architecture (Research) permits individual research investigations in the architecture discipline. The course is normally completed in 1 - 2 years of full time study (or equivalent) and will suit graduates seeking to extend and deepen their knowledge on a chosen topic through independent, sustained and academically-supervised research. Students will develop advanced skills in critical thinking, analysis and research methodologies under the supervision of internationally recognised supervisors as they produce a written thesis dissertation of approximately 60,000-80,000 words. The School of Architecture and Built Environment has specialisms in socio-cultural ecology, tectonic ecology and construction ecology themes. Students can choose topics from various areas including architectural history and theory, environmental building science, professional practice and parametric modelling and should contact the School for guidance on developing research proposals when making their applications. Information regarding Scholarships, entry requirements and application procedures can be found on the Deakin website.
The minimum qualification for admission as a candidate for a degree of doctor is a degree of bachelor with honours or a degree of master with a substantial research component, from a recognised tertiary institution, in a field relevant to the program which the applicant proposes to undertake and for which the University can provide the required supervisory expertise.
See entry pathways to research degrees for detailed information on demonstrating your research ability and eligibility criteria. International students must also meet the English language requirements.
