The Master in Architecture at the University of Luxembourg invites applications from international students, professionals and researchers.

The Master in Architecture, European Urbanisation and Globalisation programme aims to interrogate the agency of architectural design in the production of the whole material ensemble that supports and organises life on the planet. It positions architecture in a dialectical relationship with multiscalar processes of urbanisation and globalisation. The programme does not see architecture as a static discipline, but as a profession within which a multitude of interrelated actors constantly have to adapt to the shifting, multiscalar contexts within which they operate, may they be demographic, political, social, environmental, cultural or technological. Design goes hand in hand with research, and the principle of the master programme highlights the dialectical relationship between “design by research” and “research by design.” Situated at the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences (FHSE), at the University of Luxembourg, and with a strong emphasis on research, the programme promises productive connections with surrounding fields of humanities and social sciences, especially geography, economics, development, history and sociology, but also with neighboring programmes of engineering.

The programme structure is organised around a full-time, two-year interdisciplinary curriculum with the final semester being dedicated to a semester-long thesis project. The programme combines a studio-based set up of architectural education with an interdisciplinary environment of design and scholarly research. The language of instruction is English.
