Certain departmental courses have been approved for credit toward the secondary major in natural resources and environmental sciences, gerontology, international studies, American ethnic studies, and women's studies. A listing of the approved courses may be found in the Secondary Majors section of this catalog.
All programs involve extensive project work. Students are advised to budget sufficient funds to cover the cost of materials and supplies. Material costs will be higher than those published for nonstudio curricula.
Student projects, assignments, presentations, and models may be retained by the various departments. Students are advised to assemble photographic files of their work for their portfolios.
A transfer program of study can be completed elsewhere and credits transferred to the college so a student can enter the second year of a program. In addition to credit for general studies courses, transfer credit for professional courses equivalent to those offered by the College of Architecture, Planning, and Design will be accepted if earned in environmental design programs accredited by NAAB, FIDER, or LAAB. Students who have questions concerning the application of specific transfer courses should contact the associate dean/student services.
