The School of Architecture & Design is committed to a future in which social responsibility and sustainability are key elements in architecture and design.
The School of Architecture & Design at the University of Tasmania offers degree programs in Architecture, Interior Design, Furniture Design and, from 2012, Landscape Architecture. Our School is recognised as a centre for the teaching, research, design and construction of environments and artefacts that are: socially responsive and responsible, and explore the interaction between design and inhabitation at different scales; healthy, environmentally sensitive and encourage the users’ well‐being; addressing challenges of environmental changes, social and economic development, social agency and anticipatory planning and design; enriching and are enriched by new information and technology; and informed by an understanding of the changing role of design and emerging larger‐scale design questions around the relationships between the built environment, site and physical geography. Our student cohort is made up of local, interstate and international students, both recent school leavers and mature age. The University of Tasmania encourages international student enrolment in both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and around 30% of our School’s cohort is made up of international students.
