Architecture Minor

The study of architecture offers an indispensable background for studies in most disciplines: it develops skills in critical thinking and making, and it furnishes tools for interpreting and understanding the ways in which we inhabit and shape the material world. 

The minor in architecture is typically completed in five to six semesters. In addition, the minor in architecture is designed to enhance and provide additional knowledge for students planning to pursue a 3+ year accredited professional MArch graduate degree upon completion of their baccalaureate studies.
