Programs Offered

Architecture (MArch)


The School of Architecture, which is part of the Faculty of Architecture and Planning at Dalhousie University, was established in 1961 to serve the Atlantic region. While it continues to fulfill its original mandate, the School also contributes nationally and internationally to architecture through its dynamic faculty and committed student body. Its primary aim is to educate individuals who intend to become professional architects through the school's the two-year Bachelor of Environmental Design Studies program and the two-year Master of Architecture program.

The School is located in the original home of the Nova Scotia Technical College, built in 1908 and renamed the Ralph M. Medjuck Building in 2005. Corresponding to the School’s emphasis on architectural design, one-third of the building is devoted to studio spaces that are open to students 24 hours a day. Faculty facilities include computer labs, wood shop, digital lab, photo studio, and a large exhibition hall. The University Library's architecture collection is located nearby.
