The Bachelor of Landscape Architecture is an accredited professional degree that qualifies graduates to sit for state licensure. Graduates are well equipped to practice and advance the profession of landscape architecture or to continue in graduate studies. Students from the UF landscape architecture program have won numerous state and national American Society of Landscape Architecture (ASLA) Awards. Students in the major take advantage of nationally and internationally respected faculty, particularly in the final undergraduate independent project. Student work shows strength in ecologically based planning and design, urban issues and conservation; all of strategic concern in Florida and elsewhere. Educational options include an eight-month internship, focused electives for individual specialization, competitions, and interdisciplinary certificates in historic preservation, sustainable design, geographical information systems (GIS) and wetlands. Studies abroad in landscape architecture include an international service learning exchange summer program in Southeast Asia. Required field trips broaden and expand students' educational experiences. Students may also be required to attend state and national professional meetings.
