        The Certificate in Landscape Design emphasizes the interaction between human needs and the environment, and provides students with practical skills for understanding landscape design. All design studios use actual sites as case studies to teach the design process and problem solving. Students generally complete the Certificate in Landscape Design on a part-time basis in 2 to 5 years.

        Our program is open enrollment, and students chart their way through the curriculum to suit their schedule and learning style. Below is a sample three-year course of study for a Landscape Design Certificate. The 'sample' learning path assumes the student will take one course per semester. Contact the Landscape Office for support in planning your learning path.

        1st Year: Drafting, Design I, Plants/horticulture, History
        2nd Year: Construction/site engineering, History, Design II, Design III, Plants/horticulture
        3rd Year: Construction/site engineering, Independent project, one other landscape course or 2 modules.
