The Minor in Architecture is intended for those students with another major who seek to gain a basic knowledge of architecture and acquire basic skills in architectural design.
The Minor in Architecture (6 cu) requires three-semesters of design studios (ARCH 1010 or ARCH 1020, ARCH 2010, and ARCH 2020) and two courses in the history of art (as described below). Completion of either ARCH 1010 or ARCH 1020 will satisfy the prerequisite requirement to enroll in ARCH 2010. ARCH 2010 and ARCH 2020 must be taken in sequence and are only offered once in each academic year.
Students can typically begin taking courses in their first, second, or third year and still complete the Minor in Architecture and graduate in four years. The total number of course units required for the Minor in Architecture can be found here in the University Catalog.
