The proposed masters in architecture programme allow students to consolidate their formative education and their experiences in practice through the development of a deeper, more critical understanding by reading histories, theories and futures of architecture and its application. The programme aims to produce cutting-edge scholarship in the field of architectural history, philosophy, theory and to redefine practice as a process of developing a collective responsibility towards society. It shall establish a foundation to create knowledge and construct theory embedded in the contemporary Indian context.
The first year is focused on providing exposure to the students about various theoretical positions that shaped architecture throughout history until the contemporary time. It shall also introduce the different components of research and writing. A thorough understanding shall help them build their perspective of addressing the nuances of the built space.
The second-year is to explore and express the position that the students develop in architecture. They are introduced to advanced technology in architecture. They are encouraged to curate the content matter through research or design to voice their perspectives.
Graduates with bachelor degree in Architecture from COA recognised Institutions and Minimum of 55% marks and 50% in case of SC/ST candidates are eligible.
The students will be required to submit a Statement of Purpose (SOP) and a portfolio of academic and /or practice work. The final selection shall be based on a personal interview.
