Landscape Architecture

Landscape architecture is the design and planning profession that applies both art and science to achieve the best use of land. Landscape architects design the setting for a variety of land uses ranging from residential to industrial development while providing stewardship for the natural environment. The profession has a special commitment to improving the quality of urban and rural life. Students acquire hand and computer graphic skills, study design theory and site engineering and apply the knowledge to a series of environmental design projects.
