The discipline of architectural studies thus necessitates that the architecture student be conversant in the three educational domains of arts and humanities, social sciences and philosophy, and mathematics and the sciences within the specifics of the discipline. Within the major architectural design courses these are brought to the student as differing approaches through these three domains. Thus the architecture student is holistic and interdisciplinary in orientation.
In addition, the discipline of architecture allows its students to be both holistic and focused in view such that both macro- and micro-levels of the comprehension of ideas and issues are engaged in simultaneously. This significant quality of the architecture student arises from the unique requirements of the discipline which the student brings to the understanding of other disciplines.
