The four-course minor introduces students to the study of architectural history, paying particular attention to the relationship between buildings and their larger urban, cultural, economic, and social environments. The minor advances student skills in analyzing and describing the built environment. The minor includes two general survey classes that cover a variety of different cultures and geographic contexts over time as well as two upper-level classes that focus on architectural development and theoretical discourse in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Students need not fill out paperwork to apply for the minor; they need only complete the four courses and ask that they be given the recognition of the minor prior to graduation.
Students who graduate from Northeastern University with a degree in architecture, architectural studies or landscape architecture will have:
- Thorough 2D and 3D representation and modeling skills for deciphering and designing the built environment.
- Awareness of how global socio-cultural contexts influence the built environment, and how the built environment influences global communities.
