Enrolling in Courses

We'll be posting the "term timetable" shortly. This PDF will tell you when and where classes take place. 

All courses can be found on the course site. Courses are listed by academic term, and provide information on who's teaching the course, as well as lecture times and locations. Once available, course outlines can be accessed through the site.

Courses and associated information will be added to these links once available.

Tuition and Fees

Any student enrolled in a studio course (ARST 484 and ARST 444) is required to pay a $150 supplementary fee to cover workshop expenses and maintenance. You'll see this show up in MyFinancials section of MyUCalgary.

Refer to your home faculty and Enrolment Services for more information on fees.

Program Structure

The Minor in Architectural Studies (ARST) is best completed in one year. Students can complete their ARST courses over two years if needed to accommodate the requirements of a major or other scheduling conflicts. Upon completion of ARST requirements, students can then apply for admission into the first year of the two-year MArch program.
