PhD Program in the Department of Architecture - International Burch University
 

Be a PhD in Architecture


Architecture research gives you the opportunity to accurately reflect on your experiences with a social and ethical dimension


Before professionalism, the design - the creation of space and architecture in general was more social process disguised as a fabric interrelated with all other aspects of culture and society. Being a matter of economics, technology and art, architecture has become a profession rambling around the true needs of individuals and needs of society creating architectural spaces and building environments.
