Undergraduates who are enrolled in any major can apply to the minor. Completed applications including supporting academic records are submitted to the Department of Architecture office. Applicants are notified when their applications have been approved. 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. Enrollment in the minor program is limited. If the department is unable to accommodate additional minor students, it may suspend admittance to the minor program until space becomes available.
