Architecture is more than creating shelter, it's a matter of making places that meet people's needs. Designing buildings shapes how we live.
Calvin's architecture program is designed to prepare you for graduate work in architecture. Through courses in the humanities, math, art and communications, you'll explore design choices and how they facilitate social justice and the responsible use of the environment.

The department of Art and Art History offers a minor in architecture that prepares students for graduate work in the field and ultimately licensing. This minor is combined with a wide variety of possible majors including art, business, engineering, environmental studies, geography, urban studies and others. Students interested in graduate school should plan to complete one full year of physics course work (Physics 221-222) and one semester of calculus (Mathematics 171). ARTS 250 is also recommended. Consult Prof. Y. Ahn to determine the requirements of individual graduate schools.
