The College of Environment and Design has its origins in 1928, with the founding of
one of the region's oldest landscape architecture programs. Today, we offer undergraduate
and graduate degrees across three disciplinary areas—historic preservation, landscape
architecture, and urban planning and design; a PhD program in environmental design
and planning; and a campus-wide certificate program in environmental ethics. The College
also participates in several interdisciplinary certificate programs.
