Landscape Architecture (Arizona State University)
A degree in landscape architecture can allow graduates to enter the exciting world of outdoor design. Arizona State University offers those interested in this career path the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture at a program currently ranked 21st in the nation. The Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts offers a competitive, creativity-based program that most students can complete in 120 credit hours or over four years.
The curriculum establishes the balance between analytics of outside factors (size, scope, weather patterns) and creative design to help students eventually create and manage all aspects of a project from inception through completion. This can allow graduates to go on to design and create office parks, outdoor green spaces in urban areas, recreational use areas and residential planning. Graduates of the program can conduct research, analyze data and historically significant figures, draft a composite plan, and effectively work in a team environment to fulfill client needs.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
