Welcome to the 2017-2018 academic year.
The John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design Academic Calendar provides information on the wide range of choices available to Architectural Studies and Visual Studies undergraduate students pursuing an Honours Bachelor of Arts.
As a student in the Faculty, you have chosen to pursue a broad education through a design or art-based lens. This education includes courses in art, architecture, urbanism, and the broader built environment combined with a rich array of course subjects offered by the Faculty of Arts & Science. Our aim is to provide a platform for engagement between faculty, students, and a diverse spectrum of individuals active in fields related to art, architecture, landscape, and urbanism. Please always keep in mind that to take best advantage of the creative milieu at Daniels, you will need to be committed to critical intellectual inquiry and to collaboration both in and beyond the classroom and studio.
While the many choices available to you at the Faculty are exciting, we recognize that they can also be overwhelming. This calendar is your guide to your undergraduate academic career. In addition to listing the undergraduate courses offered by the Faculty, the calendar includes degree requirements, program of study details, and the rules and regulations that each student is responsible for reviewing and understanding. There are many people in the Faculty who are here to support you in your pursuit of your academic interests and goals. Please don't hesitate to contact our Office of the Registrar and Student Services to take advantage of their expertise. Our staff are here to help.
Of course, whether you are in your first or final year of study, there are many opportunities to learn outside the classroom, to become involved in activities within the broader University of Toronto community, and to stay informed of the Daniels Faculty's latest news. Please visit our website for information on our robust public lecture series and follow our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube) to keep up to date on faculty, student, and alumni news.
As a student at the Daniels Faculty, you will be the first generation of students to inhabit our new complex – a bold new work of architecture at One Spadina Crescent, one of Toronto's most iconic sites. Our new Faculty complex will be an internationally prominent venue for design, research, and teaching. For more information on our dynamic new home, please visit our website at www.daniels.utoronto.ca.
My best wishes for a rewarding year of study.
