Start Your Journey in Landscape Architecture

Established in 1933, the Department of Landscape Architecture offers the only professionally-accredited Bachelor of Landscape Architecture program in the state of Florida.

Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture applies artistic and scientific principles to the research, planning, design, and management of both natural and built environments. Integrating art and science, landscape architects enhance the quality of our environment while solving conservation and development problems. They create the best use and function of outdoor spaces at a broad range of scales, including private residential and commercial projects, public works such as parks and trails, and large-scale projects such as urban design, regional planning, and environmental restoration.
