The objective of a minor in Landscape Architecture is to provide a general overview of the profession. The minor provides introduction to environmental and cultural issues and to design, planning, and management theory and applications. A minor does not qualify a student for practice or for professional licensure.

Students must be accepted into an upper-division college before application. Application for the minor should be made as soon as possible after acceptance to aid in charting course work. To be considered, students must have a minimum 2.5 GPA.

Students must maintain a C or higher in all minor course work. All graduating students who meet the requirements and have been approved for the minor will have the minor officially listed on their transcript.

A minimum of 15 hours is required, with 6 hours of required course work. The remaining hours should be determined based on the studentís interests and background. Students with design, construction, engineering or other technical backgrounds may participate in design and/or construction studios in addition to lecture courses. Acceptance into studio courses is granted with the permission of the instructor and as space is available. Upon application, students will be advised as to what courses are appropriate.
