  • Landscape Architecture is an accredited five year program; this plan is an example of how a student may successfully complete degree requirements in five years. Students are responsible for completing requirements in the official degree sheet for each major. It is mandatory for a student to meet with an academic advisor prior to course enrollment each semester. *Courses offered every other year.
  • ** All landscape architecture students are required to complete LA 3010: Landscape Architecture Internship for a minimum of 2 credits.

Students enrolled in the long-term internship can receive up to 5 credits toward their emphasis area. Students interested in the long-term internship options should talk with their advisor.
