What will I learn?

Designing outdoor solutions.

Accredited by the national Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB), this program provides the credentials and training required to practice as a licensed landscape architect.

Professional landscape architects design and create innovative outdoor spaces that solve complex problems to improve lifestyles, communities and the environment.

Success in this challenging field demands a broad understanding of all art and design disciplines and related fields. That’s why, as a student in the professional program, you engage in interdisciplinary design studios to address real design problems. You will learn to apply design skills to address complex issues surrounding water conservation, bioregional planning, green infrastructure, urban design, sustainable development, and other areas relevant to the profession today.
