Electives

University credit courses may be taken as electives. They may come from the Faculties of Arts, Science, Engineering, Fine Arts, Management, Agricultural and Food Sciences among others, or with the permission of the Environmental Design Program Chair in special circumstances.

Supplies and Expenses

The Faculty of Architecture has an Information Technology Program fee for all enrolling students. A portion of those fees contributes to a Technology Endowment Fund managed by a student-run committee. Remaining funds will be expended on current technology items of direct benefit to students.  Further details regarding fees may be found at:

http://umanitoba.ca/student/records/fees/986.html#Arch

In addition to tuition, student fees, and related expenses, the estimated cost of materials, equipment, and textbooks for students in Environmental Design is approximately $7,000 per year.

The Environmental Design Program offers Field Studies in Years 2, 3 and 4 either as stand alone courses or in conjunction with a design studio offering. These may be regional, national or international. All related costs are to be borne by the students. A valid passport is required. A visa may also be required. 

Please refer to the Environmental Design website for camera, laptop computer and software specifications.

The Environmental Design Program has an Urban Media Lab fee. The Urban Media Lab course is offered at the start of Year 2 and is hosted off campus in advance of the regular academic session in late August.

For information about professional studies leading to the degrees of Master of Architecture, Master of City Planning, Master of Interior Design and Master of Landscape Architecture, please refer to the University of Manitoba's Graduate Calendar.
