Lancaster University has announced the news that they will be launching a new array of Architecture courses, and are currently seeking a new Chair of Architecture to lead the development of the new undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
“Our vision is for Lancaster Architecture students to have something very special. Not only will they be capable of designing great buildings, but they will draw from new research in many fields about multiple aspects of the world we live in.” Judith Mottram, Director of LICA Professor
The courses are scheduled to launch within the next three years, and aim to bring students access to LICA’s internationally-renowned research expertise. The university will be looking to build strong relationships with architecture practices and established industry partners, making this a core part of the curriculum.
“Students can expect to draw upon the energy of our outstanding research environment which cuts across fields from design to environment. They will also gain inspiration from our access to some of the UK’s most diverse and interesting built environments, as well as Lancaster’s excellent teaching reputation.” Professor Simon Guy, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Lancaster University
