Architecture

Can be taken as: Major

Architecture is the art and science of creating space – at the scale of an object like a piece of furniture, a room, a building a group of buildings, or an entire city. Architects use art, science and technology to shape the way we interact in our buildings and in our cities by designing environments that are aesthetically pleasing, structurally sound, and responsive in every way to the needs of the people who use them.

McGill's professional program in Architecture is divided into two parts. The first part is a eight-term design-based program (six-term program for students entering with the Quebec Diploma of Collegial Studies in Pure and Applied Science or the equivalent) leading to a non-professional degree, Bachelor of Science (Architecture). The second part, for students with the McGill B.Sc.(Arch.) degree or equivalent non-professional undergraduate architecture degree, is either a three-term or a two-year program leading to the Master of Architecture (Professional) degree.
