The requirements for the minor include three required courses (8 units) and a minimum of 12 units of upper division courses.


Students may elect to take the upper division courses in an area of specialization, such as architectural history and theory, historic preservation, computers and design, visual communication, landscape architecture, public places — urban spaces, housing or practice management.
