The Architecture Programme at Wits University aims to become a centre for the study of architecture in the developing world. In addition to its historical status as a leading school in South Africa, it is transforming to foster the study of the architecture of the multi-cultural, multi-lingual African continent and to interrogate its rapidly urbanising post colonial, globalising context. Here the city of Johannesburg is its laboratory.

Currently this programme is being directed by Dr Hannah le Roux.

The following degrees are offered:
