The Architectural Studies program of University of Toronto initiates students into the discipline of architecture, using it as an unparalleled lens through which to pursue a liberal arts education.


About this Degree

The Architectural Studies program of University of Toronto is committed to establish design thinking as an important complement to the humanities and science focus at the University of Toronto. The aim of the program is to produce a cohort of graduates with visual literacy and the kinds of critical skills that will prepare them to pursue multiple career paths in fields such as architecture, landscape, urban design and other cultural enterprises that are emerging from our changing societal context.

Architectural Studies begins with an introduction to the fundamentals of the field through design, history, and technology/computation. This foundation helps students understand the variety of graphic, writing, and calculation-based practices that constitute the field. Students within the program take two years of common courses in the design, history, and technology of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism before having the option of focusing on a stream with a particular emphasis. In these streams, the two-year core is built upon through increasingly complex design problems and more advanced topics in the history and technology of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism.

Programme Structure

  • While the disciplines of architecture and art are understood to be distinct, we take advantage of the symbiotic relationship between them by offering a series of first year courses that students in both the Architectural Studies and Visual Studies are encouraged to take. 
  • The series includes two lecture courses in the history of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design; architecture studio about the design process; a workshop-based course on artistic production (Visual Strategies); and a lecture course on contemporary art practice and critical discourse.
