Curriculum in Environmental Design - Pre-Landscape Architecture Track

The bachelor of science in environmental design pre-landscape architecture track is preparation for the Master of Landscape Architecture graduate program. Pre-landscape architecture students begin taking the first three semesters of the Master of Landscape Architecture program in the summer after their third year of undergraduate study. Successful performance in the coursework leads to advanced placement in the Master of Landscape Architecture program. A successful student may complete the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design and the first professional Master of Landscape Architecture in 5 years (including 3 summers).
