With increasing focus on preserving and sustaining our natural world, a minor in landscape architecture is an ideal complement to any major that involves the built world and outdoor spaces.

Our 19-credit undergraduate minor will inspire you to apply natural and aesthetic principles to the planning, designing, preservation, and management of land. Because it emphasizes environmental systems, plants, and site grading, a landscape architecture minor could be a valuable complement to a degree in architecture, urban planning, natural resources and environmental management, or a related major. 


This minor would not qualify someone to practice or call themselves a landscape architect. Our professionally accredited Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree will qualify you for that. You should check it out!
