Master Programme in Architecture [MARCH] University of Luxembourg On the Socio-Ecological Transition

Application deadline: 15 June, 2022

The Master in Architecture addresses the contemporary challenges of climate change, resource scarcity, and social inequalities through the lens of architecture, urbanism, and territorial design. Students acquire knowledge, methods, and tools to develop research and design strategies for the socio-ecological transition towards a carbon-neutral, resilient, and more just society. The programme considers the ecological and social question of our time beyond the spectrum of technological progress and economic growth and, more importantly, as a cultural and political project that embraces issues of governance, ownership, practices, and participation.

The programme provides future professionals with relevant skills concerning research and design in the field of architecture and urbanism. Students deepen the knowledge acquired during their Bachelor studies and can master complex design tasks at various scales—from the territory to the neighbourhood. The programme prepares them for their role as critical and engaged actors in the production of space.
We are a small and ambitious team of architectural and planning experts, running an intimate and highly personal programme nestled within the Department of Geography and Spatial Planning of the University of Luxembourg. The curriculum covers a full-time two-year programme, with the final semester dedicated to a semester-long thesis project. Each semester corresponds to a total of 30 ECTS.
