The MArch is a first professional degree in Architecture accredited by the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB). The MArch is a two-year course-based Master’s degree with a Foundation year for those applicants without a design-related undergraduate degree. Our approach engages the contemporary challenges facing the discipline of architecture through our commitment to, and expertise in, critical practice, digital design and fabrication, building performance and responsiveness, and cultural theory.



The new MLA is a three-year professional course-based program consisting of a foundation year plus two years at the Master’s level. Our MLA program aims to sustainably address the critical issues facing settlements, societies and environments, using a landscape-based approach. It emphasizes and builds on the faculty’s strengths in the areas of urban design, ecological design, regional planning, and cultural landscapes. The program is currently seeking accreditation through the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA).



The MPlan program is a two-year professional course-based program and is designed to provide graduates with the core competencies required for certification by the Canadian Institute of Planners and its affiliate, the Alberta Professional Planners Institute. Our Master of Planning program is a distinctly different design- and studio-based program.  Studio emphasis engages students with real-world problems, with real clients, often helping to directly shape the built environment. Studio-based learning is applied learning -- synthesizing the skills and knowledge gained throughout the program to address complex problems at a variety of scales, and emphasizing a design approach.
