UNDERGRADUATE MINORS

STUDENTS NOT ENROLLED IN THE SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE

Students who are interested in declaring a minor offered by the School of Architecture should meet with the academic advisor for their own major to begin planning minor coursework and then apply for the minor of your choice.

After you apply for one of the School of Architecture minors, you will receive a standardized, automated message instructing you to contact the advisor for your major to request that the minor be added to your degree profile. Do not skip this step. 

Each minor listed below requires fifteen hours of coursework (five courses).

  • Courses may be taken in any order, as long as prerequisites are met.
  • There are no courses that are required for any of the minors; the student may just pick a collection of five courses that will count.
  • Six hours must be upper-division; all courses can be upper-division.
  • Some courses are only offered once per year.
  • Some courses may be restricted, which may indicate that instructor permission is required.

STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE

A minor is optional in the School of Architecture; therefore, a minor is not required to complete a bachelor's degree in the School of Architecture. However, if you choose to complete a minor you must complete it according to the requirements, policies, and procedures established by The University and in consultation with your School of Architecture academic advisor.

Students enrolled in the School of Architecture may pursue minors offered outside of the School of Architecture. 

Students interested in pursuing a minor or a certificate may search the University's minor/certificate inventory to see what minors and certificates are offered. From the inventory, you can access each minor or certificate's webpage to view the requirements of that program. Please read each program's application instructions and eligibility criteria carefully before completing the application.

Planned carefully, pursuing a minor will not extend the time to degree for students in the Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree plans. You may use your required electives in pursuit of a minor.

Students in the Bachelor of Science in Interior Design degree have only six hours of electives to fulfill, so for many students pursuing a minor may delay the graduation semester.
