Minor in Architecture

About the Minor

A minor in Architecture gives students majoring in other disciplines an opportunity to explore architecture through a coherent sequence of coursework. The minor in Architecture can also be used for preparation towards professional graduate study in this field. Interested students should consult the Architecture program director for course selection and scheduling.

The minor requires design studio courses, courses in architectural history, and architectural elective courses. No more than 9.0 credits from a student's major can be used to fulfill the minor requirements.
