The Landscape Architecture program of the University of Massachusetts Amherst prepares students to become leaders throughout the broad range of professional activities which define the profession. The program seeks to provide:
- An understanding of the history of peoples' relationships to the land, and of the fundamental theories of planning and design intervention.
- An understanding of the physical, cultural and biotic forces which influence environmental design.
- Opportunities to creatively engage a broad range of real contemporary problems in planning and design.
- A working knowledge of the information, processes and techniques used in the landscape planning and design professions.
- The capacity to communicate with specialists in other design fields and in relevant social and natural sciences.
Graduates of the program work in numerous capacities: as environmental stewards and as guardians of our cultural landscape heritage; as avant-garde designers whose forms and spaces express the fundamental issues of our times; as planners and managers whose design perspective qualifies them to evaluate and create environmental policies; as private practitioners who imaginatively interpret and resolve design problems; and as educators who continue to explore and teach in colleges and universities throughout the world.
