Architecture Transfer Preparation

Recommended Courses

This recommendation is based on the classes accepted for transfer by California State Colleges and Universities. These courses are designed to satisfy lower-division major requirements at four-year institutions. Variations in requirements exist at specific universities or for specific programs. Therefore, it is essential that students refer to catalogs of proposed universities and consult counselors and architecture faculty as they prepare their programs. The classes listed represent a minimum for most schools; additional courses will improve level of preparation. This recommended course list assumes high school preparation including Trigonometry, Pre-calculus Mathematics, Physics, Art, and English.
