      The Certificate in Landscape Design links the disciplines of history and design and is unique in the United States. The curriculum emphasizes landscape design history, promotes research in the discipline, and raises and addresses issues of public policy involving the land. The curriculum recognizes the interrelationship of form, culture, and ideas, and examines how and why people structure their external environments. It prepares students to work in the areas of landscape design history, preservation, and the environment at the community, state, and national levels. Students generally complete the Certificate in Landscape Design History on a part-time basis in 2 to 5 years.
