The Melbourne School of Design (MSD) attracts outstanding local and international graduates to undertake innovative research on built environment topics through our Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree.

The MPhil is a higher-level research degree that requires advanced research, conceptual and writing skills. Working under the guidance of academic supervisors, MPhil candidates develop advanced knowledge and expertise by conducting independent and sustained research that examines a specific problem, issue or topic. The thesis demonstrates a critical application of specialist knowledge that makes an independent contribution to existing scholarship.
