Selecting courses

To meet requirements for the major, students will take design studio courses in architectural studies as well as courses in art history, studio art, and related disciplines. Among the design studios offered at Mount Holyoke, Smith, and Hampshire Colleges, as well as the University of Massachusetts Amherst, are architectural design, landscape architecture, and interior design.

Mount Holyoke’s art history department offers numerous courses with significant architectural content, among them Greek Art, Roman Art, Age of Cathedrals, Italian Renaissance Art, and Modern Architecture, and courses on the arts of China, Japan, Islam, and India.
