Why PSLA?

Educational Experience

Our Program offers an accredited, professional, four-year Bachelor of Science degree in landscape architecture. Students who declare as landscape architecture majors as freshmen or join us prior to the sophomore year typically complete their degree in four years at the University of Connecticut. Students who join us later in their academic career typically take three years from the time they join us to complete the degree.

The curriculum is design-based with a strong emphasis on plant science. Creative problem solving is developed, creative thought is encouraged, and the ability to present ideas graphically and verbally is enhanced. At the same time, knowledge of plants and horticulture is a strength of the program.

Graduates from our program go on to do high-level graduate studies, work in nationally recognized firms, and become leaders at the national, state, and local level.
