What is it about? Landscape Architects design, build, plan, and manage natural and built
environments of different sizes and contexts. We work on a wide range of projects, from urban parks to nature reserves, residential communities infrastructure, wilderness areas to the reclamation of landfills or mines, and from the scale of small gardens to entire nations.

The discipline of Landscape Architecture is continuously broadened and reinvented as we gain a deeper understanding of natural processes, environmental change, cultural development and technologies. Our ability to navigate multiple disciplines positions us as leaders in the design and planning of sustainable built environments.

The minor program exposes students to the technologies, theories, and processes of landscape architecture, as a means of a critical understanding of the built environment.
