Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at University of Toronto

Visual Studies in the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in two streams of study: Studio Art and Curatorial Studies. Situated within one of the world’s top research institutions, the programs focus on a critical engagement with art while fostering collaborations with other faculties and research institutions across the University. Visual Studies provides participants with a unique environment for the rigorous investigation of the interdisciplinary components inherent in contemporary art and curatorial practice, as well as in critical writing, theory, art history, and related areas requiring a high degree of visual literacy. Within its new home in the Architecture faculty, undergraduate Visual Studies and Architecture students share a core curriculum in both studio and theory, while graduate programs interweave both studio and curatorial streams that encourage a contemporary understanding of exhibition making. Through a close partnership with the aggregate of University of Toronto’s galleries graduating students have the opportunity to gain professional experience in the course of completing their research.
