                Landscape architecture studio

With a special commitment to improving the quality of urban and rural life, landscape architects utilize both art and science to achieve the best use of land. During this program students acquire hand and computer graphic skills, study design theory and site engineering and apply the knowledge to a series of environmental design projects.

For examples of student designs, view projects from LARC 450 and 652.
