Architectural History, Minor


The four-course minor introduces students to the study of architectural history, paying particular attention to the relationship between buildings and their larger urban, cultural, economic, and social environments. The minor includes two general survey classes that cover a variety of different cultures and geographic contexts over time as well as two upper-level classes that focus on architectural development and theoretical discourse in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Students need not fill out paperwork to apply for the minor; they need only complete the four courses and ask that they be given the recognition of the minor prior to graduation. 

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.

Note: This minor is not available to architecture majors.
