Architecture and Urbanism (Minor)
The interdisciplinary Architecture and Urbanism Minor brings together the prominent emphases on the material landscapes and cultural environments of the city evident in Geography courses and History of Art and Architecture courses. While both History of Art and Architecture and Geography have different kinds of theoretical or historical questions, they nevertheless strongly overlap when considering how the specific geographic spaces of cities unfold as particular spatial and cultural constructs. Courses in the minor thus explore the variety of ways in which the spaces of cities relate to their historical/geographical materiality. In this sense, culture is broadly construed to encompass the spatial, aesthetic, linguistic, and other social practices that define the material and phenomenological particularities of cities.
The minor is made up of 5 courses total, 2 required courses and 3 additional courses selected from the list below.
