Are you interested in design and city building?

These architecture, planning and landscape architecture courses are a good place to start. As an undergraduate student, you can take university credit courses without being admitted to a program leading to a degree, diploma or certificate.

Undergraduate Courses

We offer a stream of introductory courses that are open to all undergraduates. Whether you already know you want a professional career in architecture, planning or landscape architecture, or are just interested in learning a bit more about design and city building, these courses can be combined with almost any undergraduate degree program. They are also a great preparation for our Minor in Architectural Studies.
