Regulations (B.Architectural Studies)

In addition to the specific program requirements, students must satisfy the academic regulations of the university, and the faculty regulations for the degree, below. Students should consult the School when planning their program and selecting courses.

Residency Requirement

B.A.S. Hons.

  • Conservation and Sustainability
  • Urbanism

To be eligible to graduate, students in these programs must present a minimum of 5.0 residency credits in their degree program.

B.A.S. Hons.

  • Design

To be eligible to graduate, students in this program must present a minimum of half the total number of credits required in their program as residency credits.

For more information, consult section 5.3 Minimum Number of Carleton Credits (Residency and Advanced Credits), in the Academic Regulations of the University section of this Calendar.

Retention of Work

Keeping a good portfolio is a most important part of architectural education. A portfolio represents a record of the student's progress and design experience over the years, and is an indispensable requirement for any future job application. A portfolio is started in first year and continues to expand until graduation. The School, therefore, requires that each student produce reductions (normally 8 1/2 x 11 inch reproductions, colour or black and white, slides, and/or digital format CD) of his or her work at the end of each term. One copy of the work should be put in the student's portfolio and the other turned in to the instructor for retention in the School's archives. (This facilitates retrospective exhibitions of work, accreditation, publications and any future references for pedagogic purposes.) Original work is the property of the students, but the School retains the right to keep work of merit for up to two years after the date of submission. The School will make every effort to preserve the work in good condition, and will give authorship credit and take care of its proper use.
