What you will learn in this program
Outstanding teachers, study-abroad options, innovative courses with practicing architects and leading-edge workshop facilities are just a few of the benefits you'll receive as one of our architecture students.
Our approach engages the contemporary challenges facing the discipline of architecture, with experts in critical practice, digital design and fabrication, building performance, cultural theory and architectural history. With the completion of our Architectural Studies Minor as part of your undergraduate degree, you will gain a year’s worth of course work toward our accredited three-year Master of Architect degree and be on the path toward becoming a registered architect. Undergraduate study is required - you cannot enter the MArch program directly from high school. The most up-to-date admission requirements can be found at evds.ucalgary.ca.

In the Faculty of Environmental Design, we are committed to research and teaching that prepares architects for the future through responsive architecture, generative design, digital fabrication and integrated techniques - to be critical thinkers who engage with emerging forms of design practice in an increasingly interconnected design environment.

Here are a few suggestions:
Last semester included an incredible five-day studio project, where we worked on creating something lasting in an intense team environment. I definitely see the world differently having gone through this program. It’s amazing how much we’ve learned in three years. You understand how important design is and how it governs every component of people’s existence.
