RAIC Centre for Architecture

Athabasca University and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) proudly present Canada's first online Architectural programs! To this end, these two organizations have formed the RAIC Centre for Architecture at Athabasca University, which provides a new way to study architecture.

The centre serves three kinds of students: general interest students, RAIC syllabus students and internationally trained architects.

The strength of this program is that it serves the adult learner who wishes to earn a quality university education regardless of age, gender, culture, ability or disability, geographic location, career and family commitments.

All three groups of students can work towards a variety of credentials: Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BSc Arch), Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Architecture (PBDA) and Professional Development (in development).
