Building History, Building the Future
Housed in the Department of Art and Art History, the minor introduces students to the major works and problems of architectural history, and the techniques of visual and spatial representation. In consultation with faculty students may organize a course of study beyond the minor that will prepare them to apply to graduate programs in architecture and related fields.
- Trinity’s strengths in architectural history, studio art, urban studies, and engineering make it an ideal place to study architecture.
- San Antonio is one of the only cities in the U.S. with major buildings from the 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries--it’s an ideal place to study architecture!
- Tailor a course of study that emphasizes design or history, and that may include engineering, physics, urban studies, environmental studies, or set design.
What You'll Study
Faculty expertise in architectural history spans millennia and the globe. Studio faculty provide world-class training in the techniques of visual expression that are essential to success in any design field.
When You Graduate
Graduate School and Beyond
Graduates leave Trinity as highly attractive applicants to design programs because of their excellent liberal arts education and knowledge of the history and theory of architecture. Students work closely with faculty to develop their applications.
With an education firmly grounded in the liberal arts, minors leave prepared to pursue graduate work if they so choose.
