The MArch(SEEC) qualification is a one year full-time (or two-year part-time) programme on sustainability and energy studies with a focus on cities, settlements, buildings and architecture. As the centres of human habitation as well as production and consumption, cities and their respective built environments pose a double-edged sustainability dilemma for humanity with regard to challenges versus intervention, adaptation and mitigation opportunities. Based on a multi-disciplinary approach, the programme admits students with honors-level qualification in diverse disciplines including the built environment, engineering, social-sciences, humanities and natural sciences. Graduates of this qualification can expect to play a significant role in the transition processes towards greening the economy, consumption and lifestyles in the South African, regional and global economies and markets as well as related policies and institutional transformations.
The curriculum for the qualification is structured into FIVE Compulsory Courses and ONE Elective to be selected out of three elective courses
