Bachelor of Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urbanism

This program is pending final approval by the Ministry of Advanced Education.

In the Bachelor of Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urbanism program, you will explore the connectedness of design across multiple scales. You’ll learn how design impacts society and the environment, and how the shaping of space can effect cultural changes. You’ll build a strong foundation in critical thinking and practical skills necessary to create environments that are socially and ecologically sustainable.

The program revolves around a core design studio sequence that begins with foundational skills and culminates in the design of complex spaces. In each studio, you will explore design at one of many scales: from the body to the city. Courses in history, theory, media, technology, and professional practice round out the curriculum.

The Bachelor of Design is not a professional degree. However, it does prepare you for a number of possible futures including graduate studies in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and other allied fields of design.
