The Minor in Design provides an opportunity for Tulane undergraduate students to study design principles beyond the introductory level.  Students pursuing majors with other schools utilize the dynamic and catalytic strategies of design process and critical thinking as strategies within other areas of study.  The requirements of the minor are designed to allow students flexibility to pursue individual interests while gaining an overview of the discipline.  To minor in design, students should meet with the Director of Undergraduate Architecture Programs or the Director of Student Affairs to establish a curriculum.

A minor in design consists of five courses and a minimum of 17 hours of course work.  Some of these courses have prerequisites and to enroll students seeking the minor must satisfy the prerequisites or have permission of the instructor. Students may satisfy the remainder of the credit requirement for a minor with any courses offered in the Design curriculum.
