The major in History of Architecture explores the history of styles and monuments. It also provides you with a rich and nuanced understanding of how humanity has interacted with the environment by constructing buildings and cities and by manipulating the landscape, under different social, political, technological and economic circumstances. The research and teaching specialties of the history of architecture faculty include Islamic architecture, architecture of the Middle Ages, 16th c. Italian architecture, French Early Modern architecture, American architecture, Medievalism, Indian architecture, and Southeast and East Asian architecture.
