Students take two .5 CU sections of ARCH 6110.
Students may substitute an approved History Topics course for American Architecture with approval from the department.
In their final year, dual-degree students enroll in HSPV 7100: Thesis I (1 CU) in the Fall and ARCH 7060: Thesis (2 CUs) in the Spring.
Note: due to the special scheduling required for students in this dual-degree, in which there is an academic year that requires 5.5 CUs in one semester and 4.5 CUs in the other semester, no additional tuition charges are assessed for the 10 academic year CUs needed in this situation. However, students who choose to take more than 10 CUs in the academic year will be subject to Weitzman's regular overload tuition policies.
The degree and major requirements displayed are intended as a guide for students entering in the Fall of 2023 and later. Students should consult with their academic program regarding final certifications and requirements for graduation.
