Information for prospective students of Architecture (M.A.)

Design and construction - from the first idea to the final detail

The master's degree course Architecture at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences has an application-oriented profile that is close to practice. The degree course focuses on applied design and project work, which is accompanied by a large number of elective modules. The students have the chance to specialize in the fields of their choice.

The module 'design and construction in architecture' is a mandatory module and forms the core of the studies. Additional modules from the areas of 'building and planning', 'economy, theory, history, building theory and urban development', and 'special fields of construction, of the material and the support structure' as well as from the obligatory modules of other building-related master's degree courses can be chosen. A series of lectures in the fields of architecture, civil engineering, design and art complement the process of specialization.

This degree course mainly focuses on 'design and construction', which is why the design and construction modules form the core of the  study structure. They are accompanied by elective modules from a selection of foundation studies, which allow a specialization during this course of studies. The thesis is an independent work that rounds off the studies in the frame of a design project.
