The minor in architecture provides the flexibility of complementing a student’s major with an area of specialization. Taking a minor in architecture is a unique opportunity for a student to stimulate his or her imagination and learn creative approaches to problem solving.

Admission Requirements

Students in good academic standing who have completed the freshman year are eligible.

Course Requirements

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. This minor is not available to architecture majors.
