Landscape Architecture is the art of planning the appropriate use of land and designing the built environment based on an understanding of natural and cultural site characteristics, human need, and sound artistic and technical competence. The scope of landscape architecture includes site design, land use, and urban planning at all scales. The landscape architect normally is responsible for the organization and placement of buildings, recreational facilities, roads, grading, and planting design. The Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture program is accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The degree of Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture may be conferred upon a student by recommendation of the faculty and upon the satisfactory completion of a minimum of 124 semester hours of credit with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 overall and in the major. No more than one grade below a C- is allowed in any course in either Landscape Architecture or Horticulture. Also, a grade of C- or higher is required in all required General Education courses. Careers in public landscape architecture include positions with regional, county, and city planning commissions, and park, recreation, housing, and transportation agencies. Private practice includes the design of recreational, residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial projects, as well as the overall planning of new communities. Environmental protection, historical restoration, and land reclamation efforts could also be an important part of your role as a landscape architect.
