Landscape Architecture

Message from Program Director

Thank you for visiting the pages of the Graduate Program in Landscape Architecture.  We are proud to be the oldest accredited program to teach the art and science of Landscape Architecture in Maryland. The Graduate Program in Landscape Architecture focuses on study of landscapes from a systemic point of view in which the land plays an important and interactive role in our lives.  The program utilizes a collaborative education model to teach, explore, and discover.  

Landscape Architecture, as a profession of design, planning, and management of the land, enhances the quality of our lives as it gives shape to our experiences.  Landscape architects design urban plazas and parks, housing projects and office parks, or they may even develop land use policy for a whole region.  What all landscape architects have in common is a deep appreciation for the environment, commitment to the highest standards of planning and design, and the reward of work that directly enhances the quality of people's lives.  

Enjoy your visit and we hope you are as excited as we are about Landscape Architecture and the positive impacts it has all around us!
