This interdisciplinary minor administered by the Department of Art History is designed for students interested in exploring architectural history from a variety of disciplines. Architectural history uses methods familiar to art and architectural historians, architects, urban designers, landscape architects and historians, historic preservationists, classicists, archaeologists, anthropologists, historical geographers, and social historians to study and understand architecture.
This minor is open to students in all majors. Majors in Art History, Anthropology, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies, and Geography may only double count 6 credits taken in their major field towards this minor.

You want to understand architecture from multiple points of view and you are excited by the idea of an interdisciplinary approach to studying the history of architecture.
If so, the Architectural History minor sounds like a great fit for you!
