Master of Urban Design
The MA Urban Design programme brings together the three discipline of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape. This multi-disciplinary approach gives the urban design programme at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne a distinctive character among urban design programmes in the UK. The approach strikes an important balance between methods and approaches in environmental design and social sciences, in the creation of the built environment. It also produces an inter-disciplinary and cross-cultural atmosphere where students can interact with others on related programmes. Two routes for the MA are possible. The first focuses on the skills of urban design and culminates in a design thesis. The second concentrates on urban design policy and management and culminates in a dissertation. Postgraduate Diploma in Urban Design For candidates who do not wish to undertake a design thesis, or dissertation a Diploma in Urban Design is offered over two full-time semesters. The Diploma may also be taken on a part-time basis through the accumulation of certificates. Both the MA and Diploma programmes are strengthened by the links of the Departments with major urban design practices and public sector agencies. Qualification for Entry An Upper Second, or First Class Honours Degree form a recognised University ,or other awarding body, or its equivalent is required. This will normally be in a relevant subject, but there is no formal requirement and the suitability of the first degree is at the discretion of the Degree Programme Director. Aims of the degree programme The overall aim of the programme is to develop students' knowledge, understanding and skills in the field of Urban Design in order that they may contribute towards an improvement in the quality of the built environment. In particular, programme objectives are: 1. to develop understanding and the ability to evaluate change in physical, economic and social environments. 2. to improve understanding of the nature and processes of urban development and design. 3. to develop skills for promoting and implementing sensitive change in the built environment. The Structure of the Programme Modular Structure The programme is organised on a modular basis. The 12 month programme comprises 18 modules. Each module represents 100 hours of total student time. This may include 20 hours of staff contact - although there will be some variation between modules. It will also include time for assessment, and for 'self-organised' study. Semester 1 Semester 2 Summer TCP852 Urban Design Seminars (1.0) ARC861 Theory & Methods in Urban Design (1.0) TCP899 Dissertation or ARC898 Design Thesis (5.0) TCP832 Communications (1.0) ARC865 European Study Visit: City & Culture (2.0) TCP891 Principles & Practice of Urban Design (1.0) TCP821 Research Methods (1.0) ARC863 Urban Design Project (linked to European Study Visit) (2.0) TCP805 Urban Infrastructure (1.0) Option 1 (1.0) Option 2 (for MA students only) or TCP854 Special Study (for Diplomates only) (1.0) TCP899 Dissertation or ARC898 Design Thesis (for MA students only) (1.0) Postgraduate Certificate courses outline For students who wish to study for specific components of the course, the following certificate courses are embedded within the postgraduate programme in Urban Design: CERTIFICATE 1: Introduction to Urban Design Module Code Descriptive Title Semester Value TCP891 Principles & Practice of Urban Design 1 1.0 TCP852 Urban Design Seminars 1 1.0 TCP805 Urban Policy and Infrastructure 1 0.5 TCP806 Economics for Planners 1 0.5 TOTAL 3.0 modules CERTIFICATE 2: Theory and Methods of Urban Design Module Code Descriptive Title Semester Value ARC861 Theory and Methods in Urban Design 2 1.0 TCP806 European Study Visit 2 2.0 TOTAL 3.0 modules CERTIFICATE 4: Research/Design Studies in Urban Design Module Code Descriptive Title Semester Value TCP821 Research Methods 1 1.0 TCP832 Communication Skills 1 1.0 Option 1 1.0 TOTAL 3.0 modules Completion of the four certificates leads to the award of the Postgraduate Diploma in Urban Design. 3.3 Routes The programme is organised to allow students to follow one of two possible routes. The first route focuses on skills of urban design and students following this route would undertake a major design project (and not the dissertation) as part of their M.A. degree. The second route concentrates on urban design theory and policy. It is designed to develop a critical understanding of urban design issues. Students following this route would undertake a dissertation (and not a major design project) as part of their M.A. degree. The following modules are the means through which each route can be pursued: Modules Value Design Skills Route Design Awareness Route TCP891 Principles & Practice of Urban Design 1.0 * TCP852 Urban Design Seminars 1.0 * TCP805 Urban Policy and Infrastructure 0.5 * TCP806 Economics for Planners 0.5 * TCP821 Research Methods 1.0 * TCP832 Communication Skills 1.0 * TCP899 Dissertation 6.0 * TCP Option 1.0 * ARC861 Theory & Methods in U Design 1.0 * ARC863 Urban Design Project 2.0 * ARC865 European Study Visit 2.0 * ARC898 Design Thesis 6.0 * ARC Option 1.0 * modules emphasising Design skills 10 4 modules emphasising Design awareness 8 14 18 total 18 total Main Elements of the Programme Lectures/Seminars/Workshops Modules involving the teaching of knowledge, concepts and skills in relation to specific subjects normally take the form of lectures and a wide variety of other learning activities. These include seminar discussions, workshops (short practical exercises designed to develop a particular skill) as well as student-centred learning through library studies etc. Most modules on the Urban Design programme are assessed entirely in the form of Coursework. Certain modules however, may be assessed by a combination of written examination and coursework, each comprising 50% of the module assessment. Some modules, or parts of modules, will be taught to large student groups, encompassing both post graduates and senior undergraduates. This is not only a way of producing teaching efficiencies but also an integral part of a modularised academic community. Through specialist reading and coursework requirements Urban Design students will be able to gain the specialised information that they may require. Working with other dissimilar students also offers the opportunity to obtain a different perspective on a particular issue. Project/Work The urban design projects are the main vehicles for the development of design understanding and skills. They are designed to relate the theories, methods, and techniques to the practice of urban design. Students will be required to work individually and in groups. Projects are normally based in the north east of England which offers a wide range of environments from the historic cities of Durham and York to the industrial and post-industrial cities of Tyne and Wear. Where appropriate, projects will be organised in conjunction with the local public and private sector agencies in the region. This will give realism and relevance to the projects and give students a better introduction to urban design practice. Study The European context also offers a setting for projects. During the second semester there is a field trip arranged in co-operation with other postgraduate groups in the two departments. This annual study visit to a European city provides a basis for comparative studies of urban design. This is helped by the extensive European network of the two departments. Further details about this will be provided in due course. Options Options within the degree and diploma are defined within the regulations. Options are designed to give students the opportunity to choose a particular aspect of the related fields of architecture, landscape design, and town planning. The options offered relate to staff interests and research or consultancy activities. There is some variation between options in teaching modes, but typically these consist of lectures, seminars, guided reading, workshops and projects. This variation also applies to the manner in which options are assessed. Some options may include a written examination as well as coursework. Section 6 of this handbook explains assessment procedures more fully. Dissertation/Design Thesis The MA students must choose between a Dissertation or Design Thesis. Work on this commences in Semester 2 (value 1.0 module) following upon the Research Methods module in Semester 1. The bulk of the Dissertation or Design Thesis is completed between July and September. Detailed guidance on the dissertation or design thesis will be provided during the year. Students should recognise the need to submit their completed dissertation by the last day in August. Failure to do so will result in a fail mark and a new submission cannot be assessed by the Board of Examiners for 12 months. Assessment Under the modular system, each of the modules constitutes a unit of assessment, weighted by the modular value (for example the Dissertation counts as six modules). For all of the modules in the MA and the Diploma in Urban Design, the assessment of the module will occur within the semester in which the module takes place. This means, for example, that where written examinations form an element of a Semester 1 module, these examinations will take place towards the end of Semester 1. Assessment by written examination will normally take place during the 'assessment period' identified in each semester - usually in January for Semester 1 and June for Semester 2. Assessment by coursework may be undertaken and submitted throughout the semester, as indicated in the module descriptions. The award of the final degree is based on these module assessments. The General Regulations and Examination Conventions specify the regulations governing failure and re-assessment of modules.
