Message from the Dean

Dear Undergraduates, 

Welcome to the 2022-23 academic year! I am thrilled that you have chosen the John H. Daniels Faculty as your new academic home, and I look forward to meeting with you all over the coming weeks and months. 

While here, you will not only receive a broad undergraduate education that prepares you to think and to solve problems through a design lens, but also be joining one of the largest and most diverse design faculties in North America. Our faculty members are among the world’s top experts in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, visual studies and forestry. And you’ll be learning from them in the very heart of Toronto, one of the continent’s greenest and most cosmopolitan cities.  

Over the past two years, we have had to rethink how we learn and come together as a community. As a result, we have gleaned many valuable lessons that we hope will enhance your time here even more. Our aim is to restore as great a degree of normalcy and access to your experience as possible, so that you can enjoy the full benefits of our classrooms, labs, studios, libraries and more. I also urge you to take advantage of the wealth of public programming, from lectures by notable practitioners to dynamic exhibitions, offered at the Faculty throughout the year. 

This calendar is your guide to the many academic options available to you as Daniels Faculty undergraduates. Here you will find information on degree requirements, programs of study, rules and regulations, and much more. If you have any questions, please contact our Office of the Registrar and Student Services, where our professional staff are always happy to assist you. 

I very much look forward to this year together. 

Best regards, 

Juan Du, Dean  
John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design
