      Students with majors outside the School of Architecture pursuing this minor are not required to meet major declaration requirements in order pursue the minor. However, once permission has been granted for a course with the waiver of prerequisites, the student forfeits the right to pursue any undergraduate degree from the School of Architecture. Non-majors cannot receive permission for any ARCH/INTD class that is not applicable to the minor.

      Architecture majors have priority enrollment over non-majors seeking the minor, as it is a degree requirement.

      • Non-majors will require a permission number to enroll into the architecture history courses. Permission numbers will emailed to the student's UTA email address when permission has been granted.
