The Department of Architecture in collaboration with the department of Arts offers a Minor in the Design of Interior Spaces. The Minor builds on two strong and successful programs available at AUC namely the Architectural Engineering and the Graphic Design programs. It serves students in all majors at AUC.
The minor provides students with the essential notions of the design of interior spaces which will enable them to deal with the basic tools for spatial interior design. It is especially useful for students interested in pursuing careers related to the different aspects of interior design and/or to pursue further studies in the area, or to continue graduate studies in the domain of interior design if they wish.
Students from any discipline may apply for the Minor. A limited number will be accepted every semester. Students are accepted based on their GPA and on available quota in the department. The following requirements must be satisfied for joining and continuing in the Minor:
• Students with a minimum GPA of 3 are accepted based on available quota in the department.
• A minimum grade of “B” in each of the basic design courses to be able to continue in the minor.
• Architecture and Arts major students can double count only 7 credit hours from the minor towards their respective majors.
