Masters of Architecture (Coming From an Unrelated Field)

Recommended Posts

I am looking into applying to MArch programs (most likely not this year, as most deadlines have passed or will be passing soon). I would be coming from a Bachelors of Psychology, and am in the process of putting together a portfolio. I was wondering whether anyone here is aware of Canadian programs (other than UBC and UCal) that accept students who do not have a background in architecture/design. Ideally I would like to be looking at 2 year programs, but I would be open to 3 year programs.

I'm more or less in the same boat, and after some research, I found that, in addition to UBC and UCal, there's also UofT and Dalhousie. However, you won't find a Canadian MArch program that's only 2 years long - most of them are 3/3.5 years (UBC, UCal, UofT) to 4 years (Dal). Dalhousie is an interesting one, because you get also a Bachelors of Environmental Design (I think that's what it's called there), and then the MArch component lasts about a couple of years, but to my knowledge it has no direct entry so you'll  have to do all 4 years.

I hope that answers your questions!
