Architecture: McGill, followed by UBC

McGill?s architecture school is the oldest in Canada, Moshe Safdie studied there. Douglas Cardinal studied at UBC and Arthur Erickson studied at both McGill and UBC. All three architects are probably the most famous contemporary Canadian architects.

Arthur Erickson is the most overrated architect. He only makes ugly concrete structures like SFU.

York is tops for history? Nope. They are well known for certain aspects of Canadian history but they aren?t even tops at that. UofT and McGill?s history programs are tops.

Psychology: UofT

The University of Toronto also has one of the most prominent psychology departments in the world; its faculty are best known for their work on human memory. Through alliances with the Rotman Research Institute and the Baycrest Centre for Geriatrics, they?ve produced top-quality research on aging, the function of the frontal lobes, and the neurobiology of memory. If you?re familiar with research in this area--or even if you?ve just taken an intro psych class--you?ve likely heard of Fergus Craik (who came up with the idea of levels of processing) and Endel Tulving (who developed the episodic-semantic memory distinction). And yes, I would love to go to grad school there.

Economics: UofT

Rankings of Economics Departments across the world: overall, and by disciplines, for the years 1993-2003 (based on publications in 63 journals). The University of Toronto?s Economics Department ranks 36 in the world, overall. For individual disciplines in Economics, the rankings for the University of Toronto?s Economics Department (in the world) are: Economic History and History of Economic Thought, no. 26; Trade and Economic Development, no. 20; Labour Economics, no. 28; Public Economics, no. 28; Industrial Organization, no. 27. Obviously we ranked rather lower, or considerably lower, in the fields not mentioned (e.g., in theory and econometrics).
