Architectural Studies is a growing component of undergraduate liberal arts curricula at many colleges and universities, as well as in some professional architectural education programs. Often housed in an art history department and directed by an architectural historian, Architectural Studies programs generally feature an interdisciplinary major and/or minor capable of providing students with a range of critical perspectives on the built environment, as well as preparation for professional graduate study. The SAH Architectural Studies Affiliate Group provides opportunities for SAH members associated with and interested in Architectural Studies programs to discuss the institutional and pedagogical challenges unique to these programs.
