Bachelor of Architectural Studies (Pre-Professional)

Carleton’s undergraduate program in Architecture is unique in Canada. Students applying to the Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS) program choose from among three majors: 1) Design, 2) Urbanism, and 3) Conservation & Sustainability. The three majors follow parallel, but specialized, curricula.

While each is design-oriented, the majors focus on different aspects and scales of the built environment. All three BAS majors offer Directed Studies Abroad (DSA) opportunities in the third year of studies and include a co-op option. All three majors prepare students to continue on to professional studies in Architecture at the Masters level – or to advanced degrees in related disciplines.
