Architectural Studies Certificate
(If you are not an Art History Major, click here to learn about the Architectural Studies Minor)
Students interested in architecture, cities, and any aspect of the built environment.
Any Rutgers-NB student, but SAS, SEBS, and Bloustein students are especially welcome.
Students considering a career in architecture, interior design, real estate development, land use law, historic preservation, and urban planning.
Note: This minor/certificate is a general introduction to a topic that may take the student on a variety of career paths. The process of becoming a professional architect, however, requires years of study beyond the undergraduate level, approximately two years as a supervised paid intern, and the successful completion of a battery of standardized examinations managed by state licensing boards and based on national standards. The practice of architecture is highly professionalized for reasons of public safety.
