Landscape Architecture

M. Hunt, Chairperson


Landscape architecture involves applying functional and aesthetic principles to the planning, design, preservation, and management of the land. In response to social and environmental problems related to public health, welfare and safety, landscape architects combine and coordinate skills and understanding of the arts, ecology, sciences, planning, engineering, and human behavior to arrange spaces and amenities while preserving and/or restoring natural systems within the landscape for use and enjoyment. Ball State University’s undergraduate program in landscape architecture is fully accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board of the American Society of Landscape Architects and has been a nationally ranked program in the USA for over a decade.
