Landscape Design and Implementation (120 Hours)

Students interested in careers in designing and building residential, commercial, public, and institutional landscapes, using both plant material and non-living elements such as walls and fountains, should consider the Landscape Design and Implementation major. In addition to the IPS core courses, students will take courses in landscape architecture and horticulture. Through hands-on experience in course activities and participation in a professional practicum, students will learn to design, install, and maintain aesthetic outdoor environments that enrich people’s lives.
