In the Bachelor of Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urbanism program, you will explore the connectedness of design across multiple scales. You will learn how design impacts society and the environment, and how the shape and form of space can effect cultural changes. You will build a strong foundation in critical thinking and the 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. Students have ample opportunities to combine classroom- and studio-based learning with fabrication experiences, community-based fieldwork, and the opportunity to study or gain work experience abroad through the Coordinated International Experience (CIE) program or the Co-operative Education Program.

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.
