Degree project - Architecture or Sustainable Urban Design
The 2-year Master’s programmes in Architecture (MARK) and Sustainable Urban Design (SUDes) at LTH both conclude with a degree project, to be completed within the following 30-credit course:
- AAHM10: Degree Project in Architecture (Masterexamensarbete i Arkitektur)
- ASBM01: Degree Project in Sustainable Urban Design (Masterexamensarbete i Hållbar Stadsgestaltning)
The degree project constitutes a further deepening within your specialisation in MARK: Advanced Architectural Design, Human Shelter - Urban Spaces or Spatial Experiments or in SUDes: Sustainable Urban Design.
The thesis work should conclude the programme. On the Lund University Student Portal (www.student.lu.se), you can make sure you have all the courses from semester 1-3 (at least 76 credits), which, in addition to the thesis, must be included in the architectural degree.
In the degree project you must demonstrate the ability to apply and collate the knowledge and skills you have acquired in the main areas of the Master’s programme. You choose the theme/topic/focus yourself. You must, within the given time frame, show your ability to critically identify, manage and problematize complex issues, using adequate methods and/or theories, independently and creatively implement and evaluate advanced creative tasks within your own program of work, as well as communicate and discuss your work and its underlying issues, ideas, knowledge and arguments. In addition to the project work, the degree project includes a presentation at a mid-seminar and at a public occasion, exhibition of the thesis, opposition at another student's presentation, and a report, which must be archived and posted on LUP Student Papers (Lund University's database of theses and essays).
The degree project workflow is available on the right column (or further down, if you are using a smartphone). Download the document "Workflow MARK and SUDes" to learn more about how to write your thesis.
