The Landscape Institute offers courses, workshops, and special programs in landscape design, stewardship, history, horticulture, sustainability, and preservation. Our mission is to provide a broad understanding of the natural and cultural influences that shape the designed and built environment to prepare students for leadership in landscape design, stewardship, and preservation action.
Areas of Study
The program integrates design, history, and horticulture studies through:
- Studio-oriented approaches that integrate artistic, theoretical, and practical skills
- Small class sizes
- Seminar-style and participatory learning
- Flexible course sequencing and enrollment options...more.
