Students studying landscape architecture in Clemson's undergraduate program will receive a generalist education embracing the full spectrum of practice possibilities. High quality design is a thread woven throughout every experience in the curriculum. That emphasis on design has been at the foundation of the program since its inception.
Student and faculty change has led to the development of an outstanding new curriculum, which brings the perspective of quality design to all scales of intervention from the garden to the region, from rural areas to urban centers, from local projects to high profile international projects. The new curriculum also emphasizes the importance of history, theory, and research as essential informants to quality landscape architectural design. Outstanding students in the program might qualify for early entry into one of the departments masters programs: Master of Real Estate Development, Master of City and Regional Planning, and especially the Master of Landscape Architecture.
