Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Minors

The Architecture minor offers a program of study in which our undergraduates can become more adept at understanding the power of the built environment to shape lives and embody societal values.

Minor Requirements

The minor includes a minimum of six courses as follows.

Four Courses

Students may apply to the Architectural Studies Minor Coordinator for permission to integrate one course from outside the ARTS department into their minor concentration, as a substitute for one of the following requirements.

Graduate Study Recommendations

Students anticipating graduate work in architecture should be aware that liberal arts experience is highly valued by the best graduate schools. To prepare for graduate work in architecture, students should take PHYS 105  or PHYS 111  and one semester of calculus. Experience in studio courses, especially drawing (ARTS 211 ), sculpture (ARTS 263  or ARTS 264 ), is extremely valuable in the preparation of a graduate portfolio. The study of historical architecture and the ways in which architecture connects to society is promoted in many art courses such as ARTS 207 , ARTS 216 , ARTS 220 , ARTS 226 , ARTS 275 , ARTS 277 , ARTS 344 , ARTS 360 , and ARTS 372 . Students interested in careers in architecture should contact the architecture adviser.
