Athabasca University and Architecture Canada | Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) have broken new ground by forming a partnership dedicated to offering a high quality online professional architecture program. This is Canada’s first online professional architecture program designed to allow students to complete an alternate path to licensure by working in an architectural environment while completing the educational portion required for professional recognition.
The Bachelor of Science Architecture program along with the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Architecture program offer students the opportunity to achieve professional specialization in the architectural field.
1) Complete a Bachelor of Science Architectural four year degree from a recognized University (Students who hold a recognized first degree that is related but not equivalent to the B.Sc. Architecture can request admission by exception. The Program Admissions Committee will determine which BSc. Architecture courses are required to establish eligibility into the PBDA program).
2) Complete 1880 hours of logged work experience within an architectural firm. These hours can be completed while students are working towards the Bachelor of Science in Architectural degree.
3) Complete the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Architecture along with an additional 3720 hours of logged work experience within an architectural office.
