The year-and-a-half long programme is aimed at students who seek an intense educational setting in which to improve and sharpen their scholarly and research skills as well as critical thinking abilities. The study is conducted in an in-depth collaborative and experimental setting, characterized by guidance of an international body of visiting renown designers and scholars as well as select teaching staff from the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. Students participate in research– and design-based projects, theory seminars, fieldwork, and master classes. In addition, a series of public events complements the programme.
Its approach is focused on new forms of architectural thinking, alternative modes of defining a design project, and innovative ways of practicing as a designer and a researcher. It is also tailored to educate students in the formulation of integrated design knowledge, considering architecture and urban design a complex connection between cultural, social, and economic factors, as well as of strategic, organizational, and spatial considerations.
The program consists of three terms of intensive full-time study after which students receive a Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Design degree*, entitled the Berlage Post-master in Architecture and Urban Design, and accredited by the Dutch Flemish accreditation organisation NVAO.
