Department of Landscape Architecture +
Environmental and Urban Design

Landscape Architecture prepares students for research and practice while focusing on the analysis, planning, design, and management of the natural and built environment of tropical and subtropical landscapes. Our goal is to educate individuals who can serve and lead the community in the enhancement of the quality of life through the aesthetic, meaningful, and sustainable design of the physical environment.

Chair’s Message

The Department of Landscape Architecture + Environmental and Urban Design offers two degrees: a professionally-accredited Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) and a post-professional Master of Arts in Urban Design (MAUD). The MLA admits students as Freshmen, transfers (with an Associates degree), and graduate students.

Students may spend a semester at our campus in Genoa, Italy, and may attend our two-week study travel program at the Bauhaus in Dessau, Germany. Our design studios frequently include a travel component, and in recent years students have traveled to Panama, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and New Mexico.
