Degree Programme

The Master's Degree in Architecture-Conservation is a 2-years programme taught entirely in English at Sapienza University of Rome. It is equivalent to the Italian title "Laurea Magistrale" and Italian classification of the field of study: LM-4 Architecture and architectural engineering.

The Master of Science is managed by Faculty of Architecture - Department "History, Representation and Restoration of Architecture". Programme coordinator is Professor Nicola Santopuoli.

Architecture-Conservation, which focuses mainly on architectural heritage, aims to train students to consolidate and preserve existing architectural and environmental heritage and develop high-quality projects that take into account the relation between new projects, the environment and the historical aspects.

The programme brings together a range of different disciplines, including humanities and technical-scientific subjects, to prepare students to work as architects with specific competences in building processes and the conservation of existing structures. In particular, the two-year programme will delve deeper into the main competences acquired with the Bachelor's Degree and will address:

  • historical-critical and historical-technical analysis of architecture, ranging from individual projects to the landscape and environment as a whole;
  • architectural project design, execution, practice and conservation of existing architectural structures;
  • specific scientific knowledge and critical know-how.
