The Master of Science in Administrative Studies courses may be taken via the Internet. MSAS Option Areas Applied Communication Option The 12 credit hour Applied Communication Option provides advanced study in the analysis and practice of effective professional communication. The courses in this option reflect the critical communication challenges facing organization leaders today: understanding and managing diversity in the workplace; leading teams and small groups; negotiating and mediating conflict; using media technologies to communicate with diverse audiences; and developing oral and written communication skills for a variety of organizational roles. Research shows that managers spend as much as 80% of their work day communicating with others and that communication abilities are positively related to managers' job performance and upward mobility. Anyone responsible for supervising or coordinating the work of others can benefit from the Applied Communication Option. Individuals with advanced training in communication find employment in a wide variety of professional fields, including management, training and development, public relations, public information/community relations, human resources management, communication management and nonprofit administration. A background in communication (e.g., speech communication, media, journalism, business communication) is ideal but not essential. Students with backgrounds in the social sciences (e.g., psychology, sociology) humanities (English, languages, arts) or business will find that courses in the Applied Communication Option complement their earlier academic training and professional experiences. Criminal Justice Option Along with the core courses in the MSAS, the Criminal Justice Option is designed to prepare students for leadership and administrative roles in criminal justice agencies. The 12 credit hour Criminal Justice Option should be relevant for students seeking advanced positions in law enforcement, institutional and community-based corrections, and juvenile justice agencies. The Criminal Justice Option stresses the utility of the scholarly study of crime and criminal justice for administration. Through meshing necessary management skills with an appreciation for empirical research, the MSAS with a Criminal Justice Option seeks to inform and prepare tomorrow's leaders in the criminal justice system. Environmental Management Option The Environmental Management Option is designed to meet the needs of established professionals who have some responsibility for managing environmental issues, broadly defined. The option assumes that the student has an appropriate academic background in the natural and applied sciences to qualify for graduate level work. Environmental protection, conservation, and resource planning issues are addressed in this 12 credit hour option. Please NOTE: This option is NOT available via the internet. Project Management Option The 12 credit hour Project Management Option is designed to meet the needs of individuals who are established in careers and are seeking professional growth and advancement within their professions. During the past decade,the concepts behind project management have been applied in such diverse industries and organizations as defense, construction, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, banking, hospitals, advertising, law, state and local governments. Projects have the following characteristics: (1) specific objectives to be completed within certain specifications, (2) defined start and end dates, (3) funding limits (if applicable), and (4) consumable resources. The project management approach is a departure from the traditional vertical business organizational form which emphasizes a strong superior-subordinate relationship. It is characterized by new methods of restructuring management and adapting special management techniques with the purpose of obtaining better control and use of existing resources. Sports Management Option Sports Management is a 15 credit hour option, which includes a 6 credit hour field experience course. The Sports Management Option is designed to provide for preparation for management positions in professional, collegiate, and international sports, as well as, campus and community wellness/sports programs. Individualized Option The Administrative Studies program is designed to meet your particular educational needs. Don't see an option that meets your needs? Propose your own! The Individualized option gives you the opportunity to work closely with your academic advisor to develop a 12 credit hour option tailored to your specific situation and career path. Students have completed the Administrative Studies degree with individualized options in Health Care Administration, Entertainment Management, Theater Management, Public Relations and others. Homeland Security Option Homeland Security and Defense curriculum is structured around key policy and organizational problems involving homeland security. Each course prepares students to master core issues, principles, and problem-solving approaches that can be applied to specific challenges confronting their jurisdictions or sponsoring or sponsoring organizations. Producing and Screenwriting Option Producing and screenwriting is a 12 credit-hour option designed to teach students about the screenwriting craft.

MSc Architecture and Environmental Design

University of Westminster - Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2  September 2017 United Kingdom London + 1 more

This interdisciplinary and international course will provide you with skills that can be applied to diverse building typologies and global climatic, environmental and contextual issues. On completion of this course you will have a thorough understanding of the principles and methodology of environmental design and will develop critical thinking skills to challenge established practices. [+]

MSc Degrees in Environmental Studies. The global environmental and energy challenge facing current and future generations of architects and building professionals calls for a deeper understanding of the principles of environmental design, and their effective application into architectural practice worldwide. Over the last decades Environmental Design as a subject area has developed, responding to new research and experimentation, both in academia and in practice. However, buildings claiming to be environmentally conscious do not perform to the expected standards, still heavily contributing to global CO2 emissions and often providing unsatisfactory comfort conditions to occupants. The same can be said for the existing built environment which is largely outdated and underperforming, requiring urgent implementation of effective retrofit strategies. This is due to a lack of comprehensive performance prediction and feedback protocols, which are still not common practice in architectural design. Course content Students on this course will take a fresh critical look at this subject. Here you will gain the knowledge and tools to make informed design decisions based on post-occupancy feedback and performance analysis, towards a new paradigm of environmental architecture, which is environmentally and energy conscious, yet sensitive to the contextual and socio-cultural landscape we live in. You will learn environmental design methods which relate to the various stages of architectural design. You will be able to evaluate existing buildings and design new ones following a combined bioclimatic and building occupant focused approach. In the core design modules you will follow an evidence based design approach where the acquisition of specialised software and analytical tools will be directly applied to an evaluation or design project. Architecture and Environment Design MScThis interdisciplinary and international course will provide you with skills that can be applied to diverse building typologies and global climatic, environmental and contextual issues. On completion of this course you will have a thorough understanding of the principles and methodology of environmental design and will develop critical thinking skills to challenge established practices. You will hold the knowledge and the practical tools to better understand existing buildings for retrofit and to design new ones – positively driving change in this field and moving towards a truly environmentally conscious architecture. The course covers both the wider contextual and sustainable approach to environmental design, and the more technical aspects of environmentally and energy conscious building design and performance. As well as taught modules, you will take design-based modules where you will apply quantitative and qualitative analysis to the study of existing built environments and to new design projects. Core modules Evaluation of Built Environments You will be involved in practical workshops on the use of tools and on the development of analytical methods, which will be directly applied to a design studio project on the evaluation of case studies. In this module you will learn about climate and microclimate analysis and fieldwork methods for the measurement of environmental and energy parameters, thermal comfort surveys and post-occupancy evaluations. Principles of Environmental Design You will look at the principles of passive solar design and strategies for bioclimatic architecture (eg enhanced thermal performance of building envelope, solar control, natural ventilation, day-lighting, passive solar heating and cooling etc). The module will provide, through practical experimentation and laboratory exercises, fundamentals of building physics, energy and environmental foundations, including heat exchange and energy balance of buildings, and thermal and visual comfort. Theory and History of Environmental Design You will look at ethical and environmental drivers of environmental design; climate change, energy conservation and economy; standards and regulations; history of environmental design; and its various past and present definitions. Environmental and Energy Modelling You will undertake software workshops and design application of dynamic thermal modelling, Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) modelling and day-lighting. The software used will be tailored to the various stages of the design process and will range from climate data analysis to daylighting and thermal modelling. These will be directly applied to a design studio project running in parallel to the workshops. Amongst the software used are Rhino, Grasshopper, Ladybug, Radiance, Daysim, TAS and Autodesk CFD. It is recommended that students familiarise themselves with Excel, Rhino and Grasshopper prior to the commencement of the course. Thesis Project You will explore advanced topics and contexts of research applicability. The topic chosen can depend on your individual interests and aspirations, ranging from analytical projects to design proposals. The module will provide you with the background on research methods and advanced technical skills appropriate to your topic of choice. Dissertations can be formulated as a written thesis or as a hybrid written and design-project thesis. Course-specific entry requirements Generally, a good undergraduate degree (i.e. First or Upper-Second Class Honours) in Architecture or a related subject within the context of the construction industry and built environment disciplines. Applicants with qualifications in other subject areas which may be relevant to the award are encouraged to apply, each case being considered on merit. You will need a portfolio of work, or comprehensive, and a personal statement which clearly articulates why you wish to study for the award. You will need fluent written and spoken English to study at postgraduate level. If your first language is not English, you will need an IELTS score of at least 6.5 (or equivalent). The University offers pre-sessional summer programmes if you need to improve your English before starting your course. Associated careers This course will give you skills which can be used both in architectural practice and in environmental design consultancy. The research issues explored in your final thesis project could also lead to further research and an academic career through the path of a PhD degree in a number of related fields. [-]
