College of Environmental Design

Additional Programs


Many students are interested in taking advantage of CED's rich array of programs and courses, either to test the intellectual waters or gain a new set of technical skills. A good way to do either is by adding an undergraduate minor or enrolling in a concurrent degree program. CED offers seven undergraduate minors, and a range of concurrent degree programs both within the college and beyond. In addition, some undergraduates are keen to choose their own path, by designing an individual major.


Undergraduate Majors

Along with majors in architecture, landscape architecture, sustainable environmental design and urban studies, CED offers an individual major for students who wish to explore an area of study appropriate to the college but not available through one of the other undergraduate major programs.

Undergraduate Minors

The undergraduate minor programs at CED are designed to complement the college major programs. Minor programs, both within and outside CED, offer CED students the opportunity to broaden the major field and develop specialized knowledge and skills in related areas of interest.
