Design Minors + Certificates

The Design School offers three minors and concentrations; architectural studies, interior design history and landscape architecture studies.


A minor provides current students the option to learn similar skills as they complete their major. A minor is an approved, coherent concentration of academic study in a single discipline, involving substantially fewer hours of credit than a corresponding major. Most ASU colleges offer undergraduate minors in addition to majors.


Students may pursue some certificate programs along with a major and other certificate programs independently. The certificate is a programmatic or linked series of courses in a single field or one that crosses disciplinary boundaries.
