Undergraduate Degree in Architecture

Architecture is the art and science of planning, designing, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. It encompasses a great number of activities, from urban design and landscape architecture to planning construction details and designing furniture. It also encompasses the pragmatic aspects of constructing buildings and structures, including scheduling, cost estimation and construction administration.

As an architecture student at the University of Granada, you will be able to become a competent professional in this field. This degree is a vital step in your education, and is part of the process required to become a professional architect in Spain (a one-year masters degree is also required).

The University has almost completed restoring a building in the Realejo, one of the historical neighbourhoods in Granada, which will hold the new Faculty of Architecture. Combining the old architectural style of the historical neighbourhood with new advances in education and research, the Faculty will become an emblematic feature of the city.

This five-year programme is comprised of three learning stages: basic subjects, core subjects and elective subjects. While undertaking the degree, you will study subjects in areas like mathematics, physics, history of architecture, construction and construction materials, urban planning, restoration, art history and architectural analysis.

Our graduates are prepared to face all the challenges involved in the profession. As well as acquiring all the necessary skills to become professional architects, our graduates are fully qualified to pursue other career options in a wide range of design disciplines and professions which require analytical and creative skills.

Architecture requires the creative manipulation and coordination of materials and technology, and of light and shadow. An architect must have the necessary skills to resolve conflicting requirements. Architecture is one of the oldest professions, and today, more than ever, it has become an art where the old and the new merge: from the restoration of ancient buildings to research into new forms of architecture.
