Professional Master of Architecture

The Master of Architecture – Professional is a CACB-accredited degree that requires the equivalence of the B.Sc. (Architecture) degree for admittance.

Starting in September 2021, the Master of Architecture – Professional program is a 60-credit, four-term program carried over two academic years, and based on a design-intensive professional curriculum centered on a sequence of four studio courses. 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. Please see the Plan of Study for this new program, here.

Please note that students who were admitted to the Master of Architecture – Professional program in September 2020 or before, have different program requirements. See the Program Advising and Course Registration page under Current Students, here.


The Master of Architecture – Professional degree is fully accredited by the Canadian Architectural Certification Board, and is recognized as accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NCARB) in the U.S.A. Architects who have obtained their professional degree outside of Canada and who wish to become licensed architects in Canada should contact the Canadian Architectural Certification Board for further assistance.
