The BSc Architectural Studies at The University of Strathclyde 's aim is to produce graduates suitably prepared to meet the architectural demands of the 21st century.

Studying with us, you'll develop creative design skills, and learn about construction techniques, materials and environment informed by an understanding of architectural history, culture and theory.

You'll be taught to communicate and collaborate in an international studio environment by both academics and professional architects.


Career opportunities for Architectural Studies graduates range from working in large multidisciplinary practices to smaller specialist firms.

Many of our graduates are employed by highly-respected practices throughout the world, while others have set up their own businesses.

The broad-based nature of our degree programme has allowed many recent graduates to explore varied career options in for example web design, architectural model making, theatre set design and in computer games, film and music industries.

Our department also has a growing reputation for developing entrepreneurial graduates, who go on to make their mark in the sector independently. Practices such as:
