The interdisciplinary study of architecture combines all the major areas of the College's liberal arts curriculum: the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Students may choose to develop a particular thematic focus through their selection of courses, or prepare for a professional career in architecture, architectural history, landscape architecture, urban planning, historic preservation, or another allied design field. Each student completes an integrative project either as Individual or Honors Study, or through an internship.
Besides those courses listed below, others may be taken with prior approval at local colleges, at architecture summer schools, or as part of a study away program. The nearby United States Coast Guard Academy offers an "Introduction to Engineering and Design" course open to Connecticut College students. Consult the Director of Architectural Studies for more information.
