1. Mathematics:This is like the foundation of Architecture. But you don't need to study everything in Mathematics. However there are quite a few things that would be most useful for you - Geometry, Trigonometry, Algebra and Pre-Calculus. It is always good to understand the basic concepts of all these topics/

2. Physics:This is a subject whose concepts will help you in your career as an Architect. The fundamental laws of physics do remain more or less the same anywhere. Therefore, once learnt- they will be there with you to have the understanding of the field.

3. English:It is an added advantage to better use this globalized world. This is a language which gives you a professional edge. You need to be good at both verbal and written communication skills.

4. Art Courses:The courses like drawing, painting, photography, graphic designs will be very helpful to you. Such courses will help you to build your ability to visualize and conceptualize.
