As future landscape architects and planners, students in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning will learn to analyze the way people interact with the world around them and how natural environments interact with built environments. These graduate programs emphasize traditional site scale planning and design, large scale planning and management, and advancing inquiry through research. Students will graduate with the creative and technical skills needed to design and protect the spaces that define a community and region.
