Introduction to Landscape Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona
From Andrew Wilcox on April 21st, 2020
Landscape architects are professionally concerned with the design, management, preservation, and use of the land. The curriculum in Landscape Architecture provides a foundation in all of these areas with particular emphasis on design, along with the cultural and technical subjects that support it. Coursework includes study of the elements and principles of art, design and planning processes, graphic and visual communication, plants and planting design, construction methods and environmental history. Instruction fosters the development of critical thinking, creative problem-solving abilities, communication skills, technical knowledge, environmental awareness and professional responsibilities. The department of landscape architecture offers two degrees; a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture (BSLA) and a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA).
