About

The Theory and History of Architecture programme of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia is designed for architects or graduates in the humanities, archaeology or fine arts who hold a master’s degree in architecture, archaeology or the humanities.

Overview

About the Programme

The creation of this thesis may require bridging courses be taken from the master’s programme, as the Theory and History of Architecture programme of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia does not offer classes.

The thesis, on a novel subject matter or taking a new approach, supported by primary and secondary sources, drafted in English or Spanish, on a topic involving the history or theory of art or architecture, will be carried out in two stages: the first, a year of research during which candidates will come up with a research plan that must be submitted to and approved of by a panel, and the second, the execution of said thesis. Thesis supervisors and the Doctoral Committee, along with two external reports, will assess and accept the thesis before it may be presented to an examination committee.

The department will provide candidates with access to the library and School databases.
