Student presents project from Drawing on Nature elective course

Architecture Minor

Architecture Minor

Architecture is a highly integrative and complex discipline that can provide a foundation for careers in different areas of environmental design and construction, as well as provide preparation for other collaborative design processes involving the integration of art and science. 

The minor in architecture enables students to develop their creativity and passion for producing innovative, culturally-enhancing design. Students in the minor will learn to produce models for handling complex, multidisciplinary collaboration for concrete solutions to real-world social and ecological sustainability problems.

Our Curriculum

The 15-credit curriculum leading to the minor in architecture includes both required and elective courses to provide training in the fundamentals of architectural design and representation processes, architecture history, systems design, architecture theory and more. 

In addition, students will interact with faculty members in our school who are currently pursuing research across the spectrum of disciplinary and professional issues that provides a rich intellectual environment for study in this subject.
