The landscape architecture program offers a four-year undergraduate professional design curriculum, nationally accredited by the American Society of Landscape Architects.  Encompassing the breadth of the discipline, it creates a strong foundation for professional practice--creative design solutions that integrate social and environmental information. Issues addressed by landscape architects range from the design of parks, urban spaces, housing sites, and gardens to the planning, design, and management of entire regions. 

Diverse course offerings include site-scale design, planting design, urban design, landscape history, site and environmental inventory and analysis, grading, drainage and storm water management, pedestrian and vehicular circulation, landscape construction, visual communication and graphic representation, aesthetics, and creative processes. Evolving theories, practices, and technologies are integrated into the curriculum, including information technologies and concepts of sustainability. The study of landscape architecture incorporates perspectives drawn from the physical and biological sciences, social sciences, and art.
