Landscape architects play a variety of roles, ranging from designer to land-use mediator to conservationist. The Department of Landscape Architecture in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences views the art of landscape design as an expression of cultural values reinforced by many related disciplines.

The department offers accredited, license-qualifying Landscape Architecture degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate Landscape Architecture degree is the only one of its kind in the Ivy League. Both academic programs provide a sound grounding in theory and technology, which is put into practice through the design studio and related courses. Learn more
