Description:Take your passion for design and urban environments to the next level in UBC’s Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urbanism program. Through small studios and intimate seminars, you’ll learn how design impacts society and the environment, and how the shaping of space can effect cultural change.

The Bachelor of Design in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Urbanism program explores the connectedness of design across multiple scales – from the body to the city. The program revolves around a core design studio sequence that begins with foundational skills and culminates in the design of complex spaces. You’ll build a strong foundation in critical thinking and the practical skills necessary to create environments that are socially and ecologically sustainable. Additional courses in history, theory, media, technology, and professional practice contribute to a holistic design curriculum.
