Architectural Studies


Students in the Architectural Studies program at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design pursue one of the four Specialist streams offered: Comprehensive; Design of Architecture, Landscape, and Urbanism; History and Theory of Architecture, Landscape, and Urbanism; or Technology of Architecture, Landscape, and Urbanism. The Major in Architectural Studies is not open to students in the Architectural Studies program and is open only to students in the Visual Studies program.

All students beginning their studies in the Architectural Studies program are automatically enrolled in the Comprehensive stream prior to course enrolment for their first year of study in the Daniels Faculty. After their second year of study, with the completion of the required 8.0 credits, students who wish to pursue one of the more directed streams (Design of Architecture, Landscape, and Urbanism; History and Theory of Architecture, Landscape, and Urbanism; or Technology of Architecture, Landscape, and Urbanism) and meet the admission requirements listed in this academic calendar are able to request the relevant stream. Meeting the admission requirements for these streams does not guarantee entry.

Upon the completion of 4.0 credits, students in the Architectural Studies program who have an interest in Visual Studies may also request the Specialist, Major, or Minor stream in Visual Studies to be completed in addition to their Architectural Studies Specialist.   These programs are listed in the Visual Studies section of the calendar.  Additionally, students may apply to one of the certificate programs listed below to complement their Architectural Studies Specialist program. 

Students who began their studies in the Architectural Studies program prior to September 2016 are eligible to request the new Specialist streams listed below, as well as the new Specialist streams, new Major, or Minor in Visual Studies listed in the Visual Studies section of this calendar. These students should note that, should they pursue one of the new Specialist streams in Architectural Studies or Visual Studies or the new Major in Visual Studies, they may need to take additional 100-level courses and may take longer to complete their program requirements. Students who choose to pursue one of the new Specialist streams in Architectural Studies cannot also remain enrolled in one or both of the Architectural Studies Majors (Design – AHMAJ2020 and/or History, Theory, Criticism – AHMAJ2390). These students, once enrolled in one of the new Specialist streams, must drop any Architectural Studies Major (AHMAJ2020 and/or AHMAJ2390) in which they are enrolled. More information for students who began their studies in the Architectural Studies program prior to September 2016 is available at www.daniels.utoronto.ca

Architectural Studies Programs

Specialist in Architectural Studies: Comprehensive Stream (AHSPE1000)

All students beginning the Architectural Studies program are automatically enrolled in this stream prior to course enrolment for their first year of study in the Daniels Faculty.

The program in architectural studies initiates students into the discipline of architecture, using it as an unparalleled lens through which to pursue a liberal arts education. We are committed to establishing design thinking as an important complement to the humanities and science focus at the University of Toronto. The aim of the program is to produce a cohort of graduates with visual literacy and the kinds of critical skills that will prepare them to pursue multiple career paths in fields such as architecture, landscape, urban design and other cultural enterprises that are emerging from our changing societal context.

Architectural Studies begins with an introduction to the fundamentals of the field through design, history, and technology/computation. This foundation helps students understand the variety of graphic, writing, and calculation-based practices that constitute the field. Students within the program take two years of common courses in the design, history, and technology of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism before having the option of focusing on a stream with a particular emphasis. In these streams, the two-year core is built upon through increasingly complex design problems and more advanced topics in the history and technology of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism.

Following the first two years of study, students have the option of further focusing their degree by electing to pursue one of three streams: Design or History & Theory or Technology. Students may also elect not to focus their course of study and can pursue a Comprehensive Specialist stream, allowing more flexibility to simultaneously pursue Majors or Minors in other areas at the University of Toronto, with the aim of customizing their own degrees.

The Design Specialist stream, oriented towards design, is ideal for students who choose to explore, and focus their studies on the technics and methods associated with design, and design-based processes. Graduates of this stream can choose careers in design as well as in other creative media and building-based industries, or pursue graduate degrees in a range of disciplines, including architecture, landscape and planning. The primary goal of the program is to familiarize students with some of the fundamental techniques of the design process, building on the Daniels Faculty’s ethos of thinking urbanistically across all the scales and material dimensions of design practice.

The curriculum consists of two general introductory and two intermediate elective studio courses in architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism, complemented by required and elective non-studio courses in the areas of design, history, theory, and technology.

Graduates of the stream can pursue careers in design as well as in a broad range of disciplines and industries that are being transformed by new digital and design-engineering technologies, or pursue graduate degrees in a range of disciplines, including architecture, landscape and planning. The stream is designed to acquaint students with quantitative techniques and computational thinking, in ways that will allow them to creatively adapt some of these strategies to design. The program encourages an approach which spans the disciplines of computational geometry, parametric modelling, computer graphics, architecture, structural engineering, and environmental design.

Upper-level courses in the Technology stream will be studio- and or workshop-based with an emphasis upon coding and prototyping; advanced elective offerings in this sequence include topics such as landscape ecology, simulation, building information modeling, hydrology, and courses focusing on the relationship between materials and infrastructure.
