Architecture Studies Minor - ARCHIVE

University Park, College of Arts and Architecture (ARCST)

The Architecture Studies Minor will permit students in other majors the opportunity to gain insight into the discipline of Architecture. In addition, the Architecture Studies Minor will give students transferring out of the Architecture major the opportunity to receive recognition for their efforts and time spent while in the major. Combined with a degree in another major, it will allow students to work in allied design fields. They may not pursue licensure to practice Architecture. Coursework includes a design studio, art history, and architecture theory as well as courses from interest areas in digital design and community design.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
