40 List of Architecture Courses in University

the list

Last Updated on

On this post, I’ll list out Architecture courses and courses related to Architecture which will benefit students who do not wish to study Architecture course itself. I know for certain that there are two category students reading this and I will try to make sure I answer both categories.

As mentioned earlier, some of you are reading this to know courses similar or related Architecture while others want to know Architecture course outlines. That is, Architecture courses (subjects) you will learn at the university.

Firstly, let me address courses that are related to Architecture. Students who study any of the related course below can work with a construction firm. Remember, Architecture in itself is a course you can study, albeit a good one with competitive job opportunities.

If you study any of these courses related to Architecture as listed below, you set yourself aside from the crowd because unlike Architecture which is encompassing, these courses are focused area within the field of Architectural design;

  • Surveying and Geoinformatics
  • Building Technology
  • Horticulture and Landscape Architecture
  • Industrial Safety and Environmental Engineering Technology
  • Civil Engineering


Architecture Course Outlines

Now, these are Architecture courses you will study or be taught while preparing you to be an Architecture graduate. Normally, a course outline should contain; course name, course description, course hours etc…

I will only list out the course names excluding GST to avoid too much information and there is no guarantee that the listed subjects (courses) here will be fully covered in your school except for Nigeria Universities. Nevertheless, you will meet 97% of Architecture courses listed here.
