*Not a baccalaureate degree program
The Architecture Minor, a non-studio based track offered by University at Buffalo Architecture, provides students with a liberal exposure to the humanities, technology, social sciences, and aesthetic expression through the lenses of the built and natural environments. The study of architecture offers an indispensable background for students in most fields of study in that it develops skills in critical thinking and making as well as furnishing tools for interpreting and understanding the ways in which we inhabit and shape the material world. In addition, the Architecture Minor may enhance and provide additional knowledge for students interested in pursuing an NAAB-accredited professional 3+ year Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) degree or a Master of Science in Architecture - Historic Preservation track degree upon completion of their baccalaureate studies. The Architecture Minor is typically completed within six semesters. Contact School of Architecture and Planning Undergraduate Education for additional academic advisement.
