Visual Arts & The Built Environment

Program Overview & Highlights

Plant your feet in two cities in this joint program with the University of Detroit Mercy. Receive a visual arts degree from UWindsor, and a BSc in architecture from UDM in this combined program. Courses are taught by architects in this close-knit, niche program. You’ll have lots of hands-on learning opportunities through co-op, internships and projects for non-profit groups. Then there’s the option to get your master’s from UDM in just one additional year. You must be a Canadian citizen to take part in this program.
