Landscape architecture involves planning, designing and managing the physical environment at all scales — from small sites to entire regions. Although the profession is little more than 150 years old, it has quickly evolved into a position of great importance. Landscape architects work in densely populated urban areas, wilderness landscapes and everything in between. They are creative problem-solvers, sensitive to environmental issues, and keenly interested in people and how they relate to their surroundings. As a Clemson landscape architecture major, you’ll learn how to develop and manage projects such as ecological restoration; public plazas; streetscapes; “urban villages,” parks and park systems; college campuses; golf courses; resorts; industrial and office parks; and waterfronts.
