Mission & values

The Peter Guo-hua Fu School of Architecture at McGill University is dedicated to professional architectural education that flourishes through research, critical practice, and community engagement. The School strives to act responsibly and nimbly within changing cultural, social, and technical conditions, maintaining architecture’s core mission in relation to the practical and symbolic qualities of the built environment.

University setting

McGill University is one of Canada’s best-known institutions of higher learning and one of the leading universities in the world. With students coming to McGill from over 150 countries, our student body is the most internationally diverse of any research-intensive university in the country.

School philosophy

The School of Architecture educates professionals who contribute to the global community through the design, construction, and interpretation of the built environment. The School provides a diverse environment for teaching, learning, and research, supported by both traditional and state-of-the-art resources; offers professional and post-professional research-based Master’s and Ph.D. programs that enable graduates to contribute ethically to the profession, to research, and to careers in related fields; enriches multi-disciplinary teaching and research within the University and with other local and international universities; engages citizens’ groups, local, provincial, and national governments, the private sector, and the profession toward the improvement of the built environment; presents undergraduate and graduate students with educational opportunities for global engagement by maintaining a large cohort of international students and through international exchanges.

School programs

The Master of Architecture is an accredited architecture program in Canada, with reciprocity agreements in the United States and the European Union. We prepare our students in the realities of design and construction yet also able to think critically and act confidently to advance the professional discourse. Our undergraduate pre-professional program is rigorous and provides students with the tools that form the language of architecture.
