What will I learn?

Landscape architecture is the design discipline concerned with the design, planning, and management of the land. Landscape architects use their knowledge of natural and infrastructural systems to create, plan, and preserve landscapes for human use, ecological function, and climate resilience. Landscape architects regularly work with other disciplines in this pursuit such as architects, civil engineers, urban planners, ecologists, and geoscientists, among others. The Bachelor of Landscape Architecture program prepares students for this field through courses focused on design and creativity, technology, socio/cultural and ecological systems, as well as theoretical and scientific knowledge bases. The eight semester curriculum will further prepare students for the professional practice of landscape architecture, which includes site design/development, urban design/planning, regional planning, and the design of climate resilient and sustainable landscapes across a broad range of types and scales. The program prepares graduates for entry into professional practice or pursuit of advanced study in landscape architecture or related disciplines.
