Architecture (126 credits)

Offered by: Architecture     Degree: Bachelor of Science (Architecture)

Program Requirements

Program credit weight: 126 credits

Program credit weight for CEGEP students: 100 credits

The B.Sc.(Arch.) program provides conceptual, technical, and procedural foundations for the professional M.Arch. program, which is accredited by the Canadian Architectural Certification Board and recognized as accredited by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards in the US. Students entering the B.Sc.(Arch.) program complete first-year courses in general studies (including sciences, humanities, and social sciences), for which individuals entering with the Québec Diploma of Collegial Studies in Arts and Science or Pure and Applied Science (or equivalent) are generally granted transfer credits. All students then complete six terms of immersion in architecture, centered in studio courses exploring principles of design, norms of representation, cultures of construction, and the human experience of architecture. Studio-based learning is complemented by lecture courses on foundational knowledge. Complementary courses provide further opportunities to learn about how culture intersects with technology in the work of architecture, and students select electives to customize their learning experience.

Required Year 0 (Freshman) Courses

26 credits

Generally, students admitted to the Architecture program from Quebec CEGEPs are granted transfer credit for the Year 0 (Freshman) courses and enter a 100-credit (six-term) program.
