Sustainable Architecture and Planning - Minor

The Minor in Sustainable Architecture and Planning (SARP) provides undergraduate students with a multidisciplinary approach to understanding sustainability of the built environment. The curriculum emphasizes an awareness of responsible practices at a variety of scales impacting the built environment: buildings, communities, architectural systems, global resource management, and social equity. Students will become aware of responsible architectural design and develop critical thinking skills to address the multifaceted issues facing the profession today.

The Minor in Sustainable Architecture and Planning can serve as a complement to several major fields of study and is open to all Texas A&M undergraduates. The structure of the minor encourages students to gain a broad understanding before advancing to specialized areas of interest. Per University guidelines, the student’s home school/department is responsible for advising students pursuing the Minor in Sustainable Architecture and Planning.
