Major: Architectural History
Architectural History is a unique specialization that combines elements of Art History and Architecture. Unfortunately, it is offered as a distinct, structured major at only a handful of colleges and universities around the United States. Students at these schools often double major in Architectural History and something else.
If you decide to major in Architectural History, you'll gain a strong academic grounding in history (through the lens of its architecture), the growth of urban areas, and architectural theory across countless periods, cultures, and styles. You'll spend plenty of time studying grand monuments, famous palaces, and glorious temples (of course, of course), but you'll also have the opportunity to learn about the architecture of villages, farms, and small houses. And you'll develop technical skills. By the time you graduate, you'll know how to generate architectural graphics and three-dimensional computer models with the best of them, and you'll almost certainly have a working knowledge of the modern methods of historic preservation.
