In what we teach, in the research and development we engage, and in the service learning, extension, and outreach we provide, NC State University landscape architecture emphasizes evidence-based inquiry and design thinking that prepares students for current practice as well as leadership in the dynamic and transformative profession of the future.

The Landscape Architecture program delivers core and advanced design studios, seminars, and free electives in and outside the department that expose students and faculty to multiple learning experiences in the Research Triangle Region, the many historic and contemporary urban destinations of the South East, the NC State University European base in Prague, and an interdisciplinary program in Ghana. The curriculum provides students with the intellectual capacity coupled with technical and form giving “design know-how” expected and required to create innovative, long-term solutions focused on human and ecosystem health, social equity, and quality of life.
Students have diverse opportunities for intellectual and professional development wherein they learn to design and test innovative, long-term solutions to landscape problems. These include the transformative issues associated with: adaptation to climate change; increasing or decreasing population shifts and resultant impacts on transportation, water and energy supply and consumption, transportation systems and land use; place-making; and the promotion of environmental justice; and social well being.

We prepare students to enter the profession of landscape architecture as it is currently practiced, and, by virtue of our emphasis on evidence based inquiry and design thinking, to engage, and participate in propelling the profession into the future as it changes and develops in response to environmental changes and societal imperatives. We expect graduates to apply their talents to advance the knowledge and capabilities of the profession and to be competent, entrepreneurial, and competitive in the job market and within their communities.
