The Landscape Architecture program vision is to advance the discipline of landscape architecture. We work to promote that vision through innovative learning, research, and service activities. First professional B.L.A. and M.L.A. degrees are accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board. Student learning outcomes are coordinated through the curriculum, and during each semester to develop creative leaders ready for professional licensure and practice in the public or private sector.
The program specializes in semi-arid landscapes, while engaging design and planning issues critical to a sustainable, resilient, adaptable earth and its growing urban populations. Students are off-campus the spring and summer of the third year on extended internship (January through August), or a combination of study abroad and a three-month internship.
