Architecture and Environmental Design (Honours), B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 36 months


This Architecture and Environmental Design (Honours) course offered at the University of Westminster encompasses the ‘artistic’ and the ‘scientific’ to create a new generation of architects who are not only architecturally competent and environmentally aware, but also able to explore the spatial poetics with an evidence informed approach, selectively evaluate the design options and quantify building performance, environmental benefits and impact of their designs.

You will develop your creative space and form making, environmental design, technical and analytical skills, as well as your critical thinking and awareness of the wider architectural context. 

Half of your time on the course will be spent on studio-based design activities and half on bioclimatic, historical, cultural, socio-economic and professional studies. All modules have a strong interdisciplinary approach that highlights the added value environmental architects bring to the building industry and to society.

Career Path

Graduates of the Architecture and Environmental Design BSc will have wide career choices, which include:

  • fully qualified architect with environmental design expertise (RIBA)
  • environmental design consultant
  • a combined career as an architect (RIBA) and environmental design consultant
