Bachelor in Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture & Environmental Planning

Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning prepares students to analyze the ways people interact with the world around them, and how natural environments interact with built environments. This degree will provide you with the creative and technical skills needed to design and protect the spaces that define communities, such as parks, campuses, streetscapes, and plazas. You will benefit from hands-on learning and work experience with real clients. Outstanding faculty members combine their teaching, research and professional knowledge with exceptional experience to prepare future landscape architects for exciting and successful careers.

Professors plan yearly trips focused on providing students with opportunities to connect with landscape architecture professionals from across the country and around the world. These connections can be valuable as you establish yourself as a successful landscape architect. Landscape architects find career opportunities in city planning, urban redevelopment, park planning, public garden design and may work for government agencies, companies, or design firms.
