Arts and Sciences student taking architecture?

<p>Hi all,</p>

<p>I want to apply to the Arts and Sciences school so I can take a lot of music courses. But I'd also love to be able to take a few architecture courses as part of my BA, even as a minor, because I probably want to do architecture for grad school, although I'm not sure enough yet to commit to the architecture school.</p>

<p>I toured Cornell and the tour guide told us it's impossible to take courses outside your school. But on Cornell's webpage I found this: "Arts and Sciences students also enjoy access to more than 2,000 courses in the six professional and applied colleges at Cornell." </p>

<p>Maybe the rules vary from school to school. Can anyone speak to the specific question as to whether it's possible for a student in the Arts and Sciences school to take classes in the Architecture school? Thank you!</p>

<p>You can take architecture courses as a student in A&S. In fact, the architecture department even offers courses specifically for non-architecture majors. Either you heard the tour guide wrong, or the tour guide should be fired.</p>

<p>You can take any class in or outside of your school, as long as you satisfy the prerequisites. There are a few exceptions, but probably not more than 10-20 out of the thousands, and those are usually focused upper-level courses that non-majors would probably never achieve the prerequisites for.</p>
