We seek to exemplify a new generation of professionals and educators who work collaboratively across disciplines and cultures.  This provides leadership to find regenerative, equitable and beautiful designs, spatial and social practices.

Welcome to the Landscape Architecture Community

The Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture is a studio-based, professionally-accredited degree that creatively engages the landscape visually, spatially, ecologically and culturally.  The field of landscape architecture prepares students to design beautiful and sustainable landscapes on a variety of scales, from residential gardens to regional-scale landscape planning.

To us, sustainable means strong, resilient ecosystems that will be able to adapt to climate change.  Sustainable means healthy for people as well as animals and plants.  Sustainable reduces resources used and the flow of wastes. Sustainable means equitable and inclusive of all ages, cultures, economic and social groups, and economically stable now and in the future.  And sustainable means design and planning that creates communities and their spaces that are beautiful, meaningful and engaging for the people who live in them.
