Architecture at Coventry is taught as a liberal discipline that is technically, professionally, socially, and environmentally sustainable. We place an emphasis on architecture as a social practice and a technical process which deliberately spans both science and the arts. We strive to provide an architectural education that is as complex as the field of architecture itself; but taught in a way that challenges you to achieve your maximum potential.
