The Master of Urban Design (M.U.D.) program curriculum synthesizes urban design theory and practice. It provides a foundation in the seminal works of urban design theory and offers a myriad of opportunities to test and critique theory through community-based projects and design studios. Students have the necessary space to think freely and openly about urban design problems and become equipped with the skills essential for producing innovative and creative solutions. In parallel, students are exposed to the realities of urban policymaking and property development, forcing them to address the challenges that impact the urban design process. This dynamic, yet structured, curriculum capitalizes on the Vancouver region's international reputation as a leader in sustainable urban design policymaking and implementation, offering a constructive forum for critical analysis, review, and reflection.
To be eligible for admission to the M.U.D. Program, students must hold a professional degree in architecture, landscape architecture, or planning. The minimum admission requirement for students with graduate-level degrees is an overall average of 75% (UBC equivalency).
