Minor in Architecture

Open to all WashU undergraduate students, the Minor in Architecture provides an introduction to the fundamentals of the discipline. Students develop appreciation for buildings, cities, and environments and their role in society.

This 15-unit course of study includes a foundational course, such as Architecture for Non-Architects, that provides an overview of the discipline and highlights contemporary issues of architecture worldwide, with a focus on introductory methods of design and representation.

The minor also includes 3 units in architectural history, highlighting the importance of historical and cultural contexts. The remaining 9 units are structured as open architecture electives, allowing students to explore more deeply their own interests.
