Bachelor of Landscape Architecture
All incoming undergraduate students enter as pre-majors, complete the college’s first-year Core Design Program, then apply for admission to the four-year professional Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) degree program.
The professional BLA curriculum is studio based. Studios take place every semester and typically meet for four hours each, two or three days per week. During studio, you will have time to work on projects and interact one-on-one with your professor.
A number of other classes are lecture/lab-oriented where specific technical knowledge is developed. Examples include:
- LA 282: Landscape Dynamics and Design
- LA 481: Landscape Construction
Students in our program participate in our one-of-a-kind Traveling Savanna Studio during their first semester in the major. To earn their degrees, students must complete an internship, study abroad, or student exchange program. Landscape architecture professional electives are also required.
