  • ARC 294 Introduction to the Development of Architecture – 3 Credit Hours

    ARC 294 Introduction to the Development of Architecture – 3 Credit Hours. Remote Instruction.

    This course is designed for students interested in architectural history and theory yet pursuing majors outside of the formal study of architecture. As such, the content in this course is more diverse than a more traditionally formatted Introduction to Architecture class might be. The course material will primarily be delivered by two distinct methods: Lectures and small discussion groups. The lectures will cover a range of topics including fundamental lessons important to understanding the development of architecture, related to time, place and culture. In these instances, practical experiences and applied research will be shared, offering a broader demonstration of the circumstantial relationship between architecture and related fields of study. The discussions and assignments will give students an opportunity to reinforce their understanding of the content delivered in the lectures. All students will be evaluated based on their ability to comprehend course content and demonstrate an ability to relate it to a broader societal context. This can be achieved through class participation, exercises as well as final presentation.

"One thing i noticed that was different in this program than my typical classes was the instructors. Their style of teaching seemed a little more personable than I was used to which I appreciated during the program since the topic wasn’t what you typically get access to learn in high school. Also, the way the course was run left me feeling as if I got a sneak peek into what a college course at the University of Miami would be like which only got me more excited to apply and hopefully soon be a student at the school. Personally I’m interested in the world of entrepreneurship so this class was an eye-opener to what actually goes into the process of launching your own business. "
