NUS: Master of Arts in Architectural Conservation (MAArC)

Department of Architecture, National University of Singapore is pleased to inform you that the MA in Architectural Conservation (MAArC) and Graduate Diploma in Architectural Conservation programmes is now open for admissions for Jan 2021 intake.

The MAArC is distinctively Asian, with the focus on ‘living’ and ‘local’ culture, and urban in its emphasis. located at the crossroads of East and West, Singapore stands out for its unique urban landscape: historic districts, heritage buildings, and national monuments, which blend seamlessly with modern high-rise buildings. the survival of these rich and varied historic sites amid Singapore’s rapid development has been only possible due to deliberate, conscious, and integrated urban planning. with the city-state as a springboard providing enriching backdrop, we aim to provide an architectural conservation education that is sensitive to the varied challenges facing historic Asian cities, as well as diverse opportunities provided by the richness of cultural heritage, and socio-economic elements of the region.
