Minor for non-major in Landscape Studies

students at desk

Students outside the professional program may choose the undergraduate minor in landscape studies to complement their major (five courses, 15 credits).  Landscape is a useful unifying and foundational concept to address pressing problems of coupled human-environmental systems at the threshold of profound environmental change. Exploring landscape as an eco-cultural artifact provides useful insights into a culture’s relationship to nature. Studies related to landscape and design can be useful complements to many areas of study!
