Landscape Architecture

Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts

Landscape architects help make the world more sustainable, healthy and beautiful.ASU’s BSLA program offers students the opportunity to engage with the community in applied projects that strive to improve the ecological and social health of cities by designing sustainable outdoor environments. The landscape architecture program at ASU offers a fully accredited professional degree. Earning a degree from an accredited professional program is the most recognized first step towards becoming a licensed landscape architect. BSLA students enjoy a low student-to-faculty ratio―15 students to one faculty in our core design studio courses―and have rich opportunities for one-on-one instruction, as all required courses use an in-person mode of instruction. Through applied learning experiences, BSLA students have opportunities to plan and design: Parks, Greenways, Green Roofs and Living Walls, Healing Gardens and many other outdoor places. BSLA students can work as interns in professional offices and agencies where they gain hands-on professional experience to help prepare them for their future careers. During summer months, BSLA students can participate in International Field Studies. Recent trips have travelled to France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, The Czech Republic, The Netherlands, and Turkey.

As a Barrett Honors student in the BSLA program, you have the opportunity to work with a honors thesis advisor on a focused project. The opportunities available through Barrett include funding for travel and to bring a professional to ASU to review you thesis project.
