The fields of interior design and architecture are distinct design disciplines, although they overlap in many significant ways. Many talented designers are interested in both areas of expertise. This minor in Architectural Studies has been created specifically for Interior Design students who would like to gain a better understanding of architecture. Alternatively, students who have transferred out of the Bachelor of Architecture program after completing two years of study might consider this minor.
Through the Architectural Studies minor, students will gain experience in understanding architectural issues related to topics such as history and theory, building and construction, contemporary practices, and other related issues.
Faculty in architecture professional courses will make provisions for interior design students when necessary.
The Minor in Architectural Studies consists of 21 credit hours.
Prerequisite requirements and registration restrictions may apply for some courses.
