The Master’s degree in Architecture draws heavily upon the study of northern community needs coupled with an integrated approach to building systems for northern climates. Building with wood, design for climate change and digital fabrication are three areas of study for advanced graduate work, including a final design Thesis.

The program length is two-years, with a continued focus on experiential learning through design-build and community-design projects. Design studio options include ‘Architecture and Craft,’ ‘Indigenous Design’ or ‘Community Building.’ Two terms are devoted to co-operative education, placing students in design related offices locally, nationally and internationally.

The program strives to become recognized nationally for Indigenous Design at the graduate level. Indigenous worldviews and knowledge are present throughout the program, delivered in particular courses and through various community settings. The knowledge and skills gained in the professional program prepares students to enter into the profession of architecture. Graduates can expect to find employment or enter into a variety of related design fields including urban design, community planning, sustainable design, environmental design, or digital fabrication.
