The Division of Landscape Architecture houses two degree programs designed to help students think critically and creatively in addressing environmental issues related to human use of the land. Projects are rooted in the physiographic region of the Great Plains, the urban design context of metropolitan Oklahoma City, and smaller communities around the state. Graduates are expected to be versatile and ready to enter the landscape architecture profession in both public and private practice. We seek to imbue our students with a committed environmental ethic, strong design communication skills and awareness of changing resource constraints confronting designers in the 21st century. Graduates of the programs are aware of effective design and planning processes, appropriate project management at multiple scales and emergent areas of design and planning research.
