Pre-Architecture

College: College of Arts & Humanities

Students transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in order to pursue a major in architecture must have taken a minimum of 24 credit hours and must have a GPA of no less than 2.50. Because admission into the architecture major is highly competitive, students should understand that those admitted to the program will have a GPA that is higher than 2.50. While a minimum of 24 credit hours is needed to transfer, students are advised to take no more than 40 credit hours prior to transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Within the 24-40 credit hour window, the following courses are especially appropriate for students considering the architecture major.
