The Department of Art History recognizes the value of interdisciplinary perspectives in studying the history of architecture and urbanism. Students may substitute for one of the five ARTH courses a three-credit course related to architecture, urban studies, infrastructure, structural design, building structure, building construction, or historic preservation, offered by a different department or college with the approval of their advisor for the Minor in the Department of Art History. Alternatively, students who officially register for a three credit internship course (either ARTH464 or other internship courses offered by UD) may petition to have credits from the internship course fulfill one of the three credit courses, provided that the internship is related to the subject of architecture or urbanism. These electives must be formally approved by and submitted to the Departmental Chair or the Departmental Director of Undergraduate Studies.
Several courses in the Minor in History of Architecture and Urbanism may be applied toward fulfilling Group A and B breadth requirements in the College of Arts and Sciences.
* Please note: topic courses are only accepted towards this minor when the specific subject matter relates to architecture and/or urbanism.
