Professional Master of Architecture

The M.Arch. (Professional) requires the equivalence of the B.Sc. (Architecture) degree for admittance. Completion of this CACB accredited degree is in the Design Studio concentration (45 credits).

The Master of Architecture – Professional program Design Studio (DST) concentration is a 45-credit, three-term (Fall, Winter, and Fall) program based on a design-intensive professional curriculum and centered on the design studio. Students work in a traditional studio format for the first two terms and on the 9-credit terminal design project course in the third (Fall) term. Complementary and elective courses are organized to provide flexibility in individual program design and create opportunities to both explore the discipline and focus on subject areas related to research and design interests. This concentration is a 3-term consecutive degree (Fall, Winter, Fall) requiring full-time residence for one calendar year.
