Online Education

ICAA Education is excited to present the 2014 Fall Continuing Education schedule, featuring a selection of perennial favorites as well as several new courses offered in partnership with affiliated schools of architecture and design.​

Registration is currently open for two online courses in Classical Architecture offered in partnership with the Boston Architectural College. The result of coordinated efforts between the New England Chapter, ICAA National, and the Boston Architectural College, these programs were announced nationally and registration opened for the Fall term on July 31, 2014.

The ICAA is thrilled to be making its foray into online education. This format allows those interested in the ICAA Certificate in Classical Architecture to complete some of the requirements online, freeing people throughout the country from accessibility challenges often posed by location and attracting new participants to the program.

Fall 2014 online courses are as follows:

Introduction to Classical Architecture; October 20 – December 13, 2014

This course familiarizes students with the 2,500-year-old Western Classical Architecture tradition: its sources in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, and development through Medieval, Renaissance and Enlightenment periods. The vocabulary of classical architectural elements, forms and composition will be introduced via online lectures, reading assignments and topic discussion boards.
