Undergraduate Admissions

The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design offers an Honours Bachelor of Arts with two streams of study: Architectural Studies and Visual Studies. Both streams provide a broad design-, arts-, and humanities-based lens through which students gain a rich foundation in architecture, urbanism, and visual art.

Located in one of the world's most cosmpolitan cities, the Daniels Faculty offers a lively laboratory for creative design, research, and education. Our undergraduate students have access to a dynamic and culturally diverse community that includes distinguished professors who are leaders in their fields and talented graduate students. Students in our undergraduate programs are able to take advantage of the wide array of courses, academic enrichments, international opportunities, and extra-curricular experiences that one of the world's top-ranked universities has to offer.

Undergraduate students are able to customize their experience. Some choose to focus on either architecture or art, while others choose to combine the two programs. Daniels Faculty students may also take advantage of our unique relationship with the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto, combining their program in either Architectural Studies or Visual Studies with programs in everything from Physics and Economics to Cinema Studies and Environmental Geography.
