CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Landscape Architecture

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0203  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Landscape architects, designers, and planners deal with the ecological design and management of the land.  Landscape architects and designers coordinate the analysis, planning, layout, design, and management of the exterior and interior landscape.  Landscape architects and designers are employed by design and engineering firms, parks and recreation offices, landscape contractors, design and build firms, nurseries and garden centers, arboreta and botanic gardens, and grounds management firms.  A supporting background in computer design graphics and G.I.S. is helpful.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

 

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for skills assessment and advising information.
