​Architectural Studies is a set of courses offered by the Department of Art History to provide undergraduate students with insights into the history and meaning of architecture and the built environment. With a wide range of courses, students can examine cities and buildings in terms of physical form, cultural expression, and political history. Simultaneously technical and cultural, Architectural Studies allows majors in STEM fields (especially Engineering) to quickly develop new perspectives in humanities and social sciences, and, at the same time, encourages majors in History, English, Foreign Languages, Business Administration, Area Studies, and Environmental Studies, among others, to consider material and economic factors that inform social and political processes.
