Established in 1981, Architectural History MA at The Bartlett is the UK’s longest established degree in the historical, theoretical and critical interpretation of architecture, cities, urban spaces, creative practices and their representations.


Over the past 30 years, the programme has been developed to prioritise the exploration of new and existing methodologies and critical theories as they might be applied to the study of architecture and cities.


Rather than dealing with architecture exclusively through the work of famous individuals, landmark buildings, stylistic classification or normative categories, the programme locates architecture within social, ideological, creative, political, material, technological, theoretical and urban processes.
