Architecture Electives

The Architecture Elective requirement gives students breadth of study and opportunities for research at the upper levels of the pre-professional program in relation to four curricular areas: cultural history and theory (ARCH 540), technology and environment (ARCH 570), Visual and Digital Media (ARCH 510), and Urbanism and Landscape (ARCH 520). Four Architecture electives must be taken over the course of the BAS program. A minimum of two electives will be taken from the Arch 500 series in the third and fourth years (3A, 3B, 4A, 4B) of the BAS program.

The Open Elective requirement gives students some breadth of studies related to their role as educated professionals in society. Two electives from any discipline must be completed to satisfy the Architecture Open Elective requirement. These courses can be taken in any semester in the second to fourth years (2B, 3A, 3B, 4A, 4B) of the BAS program.
