The part-time Master's programme in Architecture/Environmental Design at the School of Architecture Bremen enables you to combine your studies with professional practice in a sensible and uncomplicated way. The six-semester structure is designed in such a way that your studies at the university are supplemented by an accompanying practical phase in an architecture firm.
This means that you gain a wide range of practical experience even before you graduate. The special link between your studies and the practice is supplemented by regular project reports and guest critiques contributed by renowned architects from Germany and abroad – and rounded off by accompanying field reports. On the one hand, this opens up networking opportunities with professionals in the field, and on the other, it brings insights into a supra-regional, international practice horizon.
Context-related architecture is playing an increasingly important role in dealing with the challenges raised by a highly mechanised and economised environment (including building redevelopment, resource-saving construction, low energy consumption). With its part-time Master's programme in Architecture/Environmental Design, the School of Architecture Bremen focuses on the relationship between architecture and the environment, both in terms of society and building culture as well as technology and economics.
If you are interested in this type of profiling and wish to improve your professional opportunities in the field, then this is the right programme for you.
The Master of Arts degree enables admission to the Chambers of Architects in the Länder of the Federal Republic of Germany. It also fulfils the requirements of the European Professional Qualifications Directive (Directive 2013/55/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 November 2013) and the UNESCO/UIA Charter for the Education of Architects. It thus qualifies for worldwide recognition as an architect.
Your part-time Master's programme in Architecture / Environmental Design is organised as follows:
You must choose each of the following profile areas in the course of your studies:
A: Location and Society
B: Construction and Economy
C: Materials and Ecology
Subject-related, interdisciplinary offerings and key competences. At least two elective modules must be completed in subject-related areas.
In individual cases and upon request, the chairperson of the examination committee may consent that three elective modules, including one module on a subject-related topic, may be replaced by a project module.
Throughout your studies at the School of Architecture at the Hochschule Bremen, you will have access to generously proportioned workrooms where you can get down to work on your projects and join in discussion with other students. In addition, your teachers will regularly provide suggestions and criticism in the form of ‘round-table feedback’.
In addition to the workrooms, you also have access to spacious and well-equipped workshop and CAD rooms as well as an extensive reference library (construction documentation) and a photo studio.
The School of Architecture Bremen is comprehensively networked with universities in other European and non-European countries. In the frame of your studies, you therefore enjoy a wide range of opportunities for short- or long-term stays abroad. This gives you the opportunity to gain valuable international experience – for example within the framework of the Erasmus programme.
Of course, we also cultivate a welcome culture for the many international students who come to the School of Architecture every semester. The person to contact for all questions regarding stays abroad is Prof. Klaus Schäfer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Questions about the degree programme can be answered by the contact persons on the degree programme pages. If you have any further questions about your decision to study at HSB, our advisory and service institutions will be happy to help.
