Landscape architects are activists and life-long learners who are imaginative and passionate explorers. We design places to meet your neighbor, throw a ball, have a picnic, read the newspaper, walk your dog, watch a sunset, and so much more.

Our students learn to be responsible and creative designers who listen, build trust and advocate for our environment—wildlife and humans alike. Learn a design process that is equitable, inclusive and creative. Design real world projects that range from small parklets to engaging urban outdoor environments, parks and wildlife corridors in our award winning, accredited program. 

Our real-world approach offers students pathways into the landscape architecture profession by working in professional offices as interns for credit or as paid interns with our faculty on research and design projects during the semester or over the summer.

“I chose Jefferson’s Landscape Architecture program because it offered a more intimate environment that you don’t get at other schools. You really get that one-on-one relationship with your professors. The curriculum allows you learn a multitude of things, from storm-water management, to historic preservation, to urban parks, and streetscapes; anything you can think of. I felt that I was really able to develop my skills through real world experiences.”

"I had the pleasure of interviewing, and subsequently hiring a Jefferson Landscape Architecture student. I just wanted to say how impressed we were with her portfolio, and the quality of projects arranged through [Jefferson’s] program. We were particularly struck by the human connections, and the understanding that our work is about communities and people.”
