Bachelor of Landscape Architecture
What Does a Landscape Architect Do?
Landscape architects design the spaces that define a community. By planning parks, campuses, trails, and plazas as well as residential and commercial developments, landscape architects meet the needs and goals of a community while promoting sustainability, resiliency, and artistry.
Landscape architecture involves the design, planning, and management of land - the cross section of art and science. If tackling problems like these intrigues you, perhaps seeking a degree in landscape architecture is the path for you.
