*ARC 105 Architectural Visualization has a required corequisite: CAD114. Permission of the instructor may be obtained with prior knowledge of CADD.

Note: Certain courses can be taken only in a sequence. For example, ARC 105 will be followed by ARC 115, then ARC 201 and finally ARC 202. Some courses are offered only once a year, so students should plan carefully with their advisors’ help.
