The College of Environment + Design
- Our newest graduate program, Environmental Planning & Design, accepted its first students in the fall of 2009. It is a professional program with an emphasis on a studio-based integrative planning process grounded in environmental and ecological principles.
- The Historic Preservation graduate program at CED is very highly regarded on a national level through the National Trust, and offers only one of two programs in the United States for a joint Juris Doctorate. The curriculum is recognized in Georgia as the first of it’s kind, with courses first offered in 1973, and its graduate program officially forming in 1982.
- Landscape Architecture – the combination of wise planning and artful design of the built environment – has been taught at UGA since 1928. The undergraduate program has been accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB) since 1952, as has the graduate program since 1983. Both programs consistently hold national rankings in the top 10 programs in the United States.
