Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Architecture




¿Qué aprenderé?

The McGill University Ph.D. in Architecture is a research degree with a thesis. The foundations for the doctoral thesis are developed through a series of courses taken in the first two years of study. Students and supervisors meet regularly in the first year to prepare the thesis proposal (ARCH 700). Three Literature Review preparatory courses (ARCH 721, ARCH 722, ARCH 723) and three (or more) complementary courses are taken. All students also participate in the two Research Seminars (ARCH 711, ARCH712) to present the research framework and objectives for peer critique. By the end of the second year of studies (Ph.D. 3), Ph.D. students must complete the Comprehensive Examination (ARCH 701) with a formal presentation to their advisory committee.

A thesis for the doctoral degree must constitute original scholarship and must be a distinct contribution to knowledge. It must show familiarity with previous work in the field and must demonstrate ability to plan and carry out research, organize results, and defend the approach and conclusions in a scholarly manner. The research presented must meet current standards of the discipline; as well, the thesis must clearly demonstrate how the research advances knowledge in the field. Finally, the thesis must be written in compliance with norms for academic and scholarly expression and for publication in the public domain.
