The Master of Architecture program at the University of Calgary addresses the themes and issues facing architecture today with a curriculum focused on innovation, responsiveness, and critical thinking.

Students learn how to navigate contexts and built scales, think from multiple perspectives and develop innovative solutions to the world’s design challenges. Changes in climate, the demographics of urban and rural communities, mass migration, material availability, and the formal and responsive possibilities of architecture are addressed through core courses, work-integrated learning studios, study abroad opportunities, focused research block weeks and elective courses.

The education includes opportunities for applied research and the engagement of cutting-edge digital tools; many of these experiences are provided and supported by design research labs that focus on energy conservation, lifecycle analysis, artificial intelligence, robotics, digital fabrication, and innovation in structural design.

The Master of Architecture is the foundation for becoming a licensed architect in jurisdictions across Canada, the United States, and the European Union.
