All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.

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.
