Architecture Studies

Architecture is a concept that most people are familiar with, even if they do not understand everything that goes into designing a building or structure. In order to become an architect, students must complete classes, earn a degree, and become certified.

If you are wondering how professionals in this field complete their education before and after graduation, you should be asking, “What is a course in Architecture?” The simple answer is a course is a specialized way for student to get required instruction. Possible architecture studies courses include sustainable architecture, real estate development, sketchbook drawing workshops, and interior design. These classes are meant to supplement the student who already has a strong foundation in the basics.

It is helpful for even well-established architects to pursue additional coursework, even after becoming involved with a design firm. Courses sharpen their creativity and inventive nature while also allowing students to pursue new topics to stay on top of the competitive market.

If an architecture course is part of a four year degree, the cost may be reduced. However, solo courses may cost more or less, depending on where the student enrolls.

Taking a single course does not an architect make, yet these classes are still vital to the learning process as a whole. Such courses allow well-established designers to meet the expectations of their current employer or provide the leverage the person needs to negotiate a higher salary. The right courses also allow job seekers to find the position that fits their demands.

Perhaps the most convenient thing about individual courses is the capacity to be completed remotely via online learning opportunities. Combine on-campus and computer based classes to fit your schedule and get the additional education you need. Whether you are pursuing a four-year degree or want to bone up on interesting contemporary architectural concepts, you can find the coursework that is ideal for you online.

Course in Business of Architecture

European School of Economics
Campus Full time Part time 5 - 5 weeks January 2019 United Kingdom London + 1 more

You may have acquired some excellent abilities so far in design and planning, but do you possess the skills to enable your ideas to take form and say something about the environment you live in, about yourself? The Business of Architecture Program has been created to serve as a bridge between design and the real world, design table and built form. [+]

“Architecture is the science that permits the man to reveal his own integrity in built form, and an architect’s highest responsibility is, first of all, to become whole as an individual in order to best carry out this mission, and then be of service to the world that he has created around himself. The Business of Architecture is putting integrity into form.”

Founder and President Elio D’Anna

Education today seems to be the antithesis to the classical models laid out by the ancient Greeks in which schools the pupil were encouraged to question, to participate, and before all else - to know themselves. The European School of Economics believes that the world one lives in is none other than a reflection of the inner states he lives, and that the more one knows and therefore masters himself, the more he can create a world that is pleasing for himself and others. All courses at the European School of Economics are centered around the individual as their most vital element.The world is a mere reflection of the world we live and dream internally. An individual whose aim is order and beauty cannot help but manifest this integrity in the external world. A man who loves himself and so, the world around him cannot help but create, emanate and instill order wherever he goes.... [-]

A new interdisciplinary field of design, researching the transformations of architectural, urban/regional space of the emerging "information age", explores the dynamic interaction of architecture/urbanism and the space of mass media and communication networks. It develops scenarios for the interplay of public urban and public media space.

The products of these alliances of urban/regional and media networks, of architectural and media space, are bastards: ambivalent spaces that are at the same time analog and digital, tactile and abstract, material and immaterial, expanding hyper-sensuality in the time- and placelessness of media flows. These hybrid spatial morphs act simultaneously in urban (local) and media (global) space and mediate between them, unfolding the undefined space between the local and the global, occupying the vacuum between local place and global space. Within the inversions of identity (communication), within the fluid ever-changing densities in the knitted networks, fused analogue/digital cultures are idensified.... [-]
