Landscape Architecture - Innovate, Create, Design, DO.

Landscape Architecture - Innovate, Create, Design, DO.

The simplest way to explain our major is that landscape architecture is the marriage of art and science. If you like being creative, getting lost in design/drawing, or making something "perfect," WE WANT YOU!

What is Landscape Architecture?
(also in Spanish)

You will gain skills with:

  • design basics (art)
  • creativity, innovation, thinking outside the box
  • site design (backyard scale to huge urban areas)
  • historic preservation
  • planning 
  • water resources - grading and drainage
  • horticulture (plants!)
  • sustainability/ecology 
  • humanities subjects like psychology, sociology, and anthropology

Almost everyone would probably recognize famous landscape architecture sites like:

  • New York City’s High Line
  • Chicago's Millenium Park or 
  • Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park. 

But don't rule out a downtown square, local greenway trail, or even your own backyard. Green roofs, urban farms, corporate campuses— these are also examples of landscape architecture. Check out all of the amazing ways you can practice Landscape Architecture under the jump (topics include links to award winning designs of that type and more info). (ASLA.org)

Two of our students were selected to be featured on UGA's home page as "Amazing Students":  Joe Werner and Sarah Boyer
