Prospective Students

Urban Studies is an undergraduate program at Innis College in the Faculty of Arts & Science. High school students interested in our program should first apply to the University of Toronto, St. George as a student in the Faculty of Arts and Science or the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. Students admitted to these faculties are able to apply to the Urban Studies Program upon completion of the required first-year courses. There is no direct entry into the program from high school.


Entry into the program is competitive and is based on students grades in first-year social sciences courses (see Requirements).
