What Can I Do with a Major in Landscape Architecture?

A lot of students who find the right fit in the BLA at UGA didn’t know what the field was before they got here. You may be in the same situation. Think Landscape Architecture is just “mowing lawns?” Think again!

You will learn:

-design basics (art, fundamental design skills)

-creativity, innovation, thinking outside the box, problem solving

-site design (smaller backyard scale to large urban scale)

-historic preservation


-water resources, grading, and drainage

-horticulture (plants!)

-sustainability/ecology (science)

-humanities subjects like psychology, sociology, and anthropology (the importance of place, experience, etc.)
