Canadian students:

Of the twelve architecture schools in Canada, Dalhousie may be suited best to your academic ambitions and personal interests. We're located in the centre of a historic port city on the Atlantic coast. We're also part of the largest and most diverse university in eastern Canada. Our school values hands-on experience in drawing, modeling, and building. We value the integration of design, humanities, technology, and professional practice. We also value local projects that are informed by international and historical insights.

American students:

Studying architecture at Dalhousie, then returning to the States, is a good idea. Accredited programs at Canadian and American architecture schools are professionally equivalent, so an American citizen who graduates from Dalhousie's MArch program will be on track to become an architect in the United States. You'll probably find that the international tuition fees at Dalhousie are more affordable than the domestic fees at comparable universities in the States.

International students:

Studying architecture at Dalhousie, then returning to your home country, is a good idea. Dalhousie offers an excellent architectural education with an international reputation. Our co-op work terms also enable students to live and work anywhere in the world for up to twelve months. An accredited Master of Architecture degree from Dalhousie is a major step toward architectural practice in your home country.
