Landscape architecture is concerned with creating and preserving outdoor spaces in order to improve and maintain a healthy and good quality of life for people, while ensuring the survival of the complex, physical, cultural, and natural systems that make up our planet. If you are interested in designing livable residential communities or recreation areas, restoring prairie, re-connecting city-dwellers with nature, mapping and evaluating historic cultural features, or creating healing gardens or amusement parks, this field may be for you!
In our programs, you will enjoy hands-on, active-learning courses. You will be exposed to the arts and humanities, and to the natural sciences, work on both individual and team projects, and engage with real clients to solve landscape problems. Our programs will also prepare you for graduate work in advanced landscape architecture and planning, or in natural and cultural conservation planning and management.
