The Graduate Program of Studies offered by the Department of Architecture of the University of Patras focuses on the research, study and implementation of methods for advanced architectural design and management of urban spaces. The program aims to train graduate students on architectural design and on the planning of the urban and suburban environment in order to address sustainability issues and contemporary urban phenomena. The program provides students with the necessary theoretical and methodological background for an interdisciplinary approach to the above issues.

Emphasis is placed on the investigation of complex environmental and housing development issues, contemporary urban phenomena on an international scale, and on state-of-the-art technological approaches.

The length of the Graduate Program of Studies is three semesters (full-time attendance) and leads to a “Master of Science (MSc) in Architecture and Urban Design and Studies”. Courses are taught in Greek or English.
