The Architectural Studies Program at Mount Holyoke offers an interdisciplinary approach to issues of design and theory. The Bachelor in Architectural Studies from Mount Holyoke College , which blends studio and academic work, explores the intersections between built forms and the natural landscape, as well as the interactions between architecture and the cultural landscape. Anthropology, computer science, environmental studies, history, psychology, and sociology all come into play, alongside art, math, and physics.
The major in architectural studies is administered by the Department of Art and Art History. It consists of 44 credits in art history, studio art, and design studio. With interests ranging from architectural history to urban design, majors have enrolled in study abroad programs across the globe, including Copenhagen, Florence, and Paris. The minor in architectural studies may be created in consultation with a faculty advisor in the program.
