It is possible to take other architecture courses and apply them to the minor with the permission of the instructor.
Undergraduates who are enrolled in any major may apply to the minor. Completed applications including a statement of support from the student’s major advisor are submitted to the Department of Architecture office. Applicants must make an appointment with the architecture advisor to discuss their plan of study. Because the department’s first obligation is to its majors, it cannot guarantee availability of courses for minors. Minors may register if space is available after the needs of majors have been met. Space for enrollment in the minor program is limited.
