Environmental Design Program

The Environmental Design degree offers a sustainability-focused curriculum that will give you a sound theoretical understanding of both environmental and human issues and a solid foundation of knowledge to work in a wide range of design and planning fields.  Professionals in these fields oversee and direct the building of beautiful and sustainable places in which to work and live; they humanize cities, protect farm land, and conserve significant landscape resources.  There are four areas of concentration within the major: horticultural, landscape, urban, and built environment.  (see more under Concentrations below).
