Urban Landscapes Certificate
The realm of Landscape Architecture explores a range of systems and scales within urban environments to examine functional landscapes and patterns of urban growth. The Urban Landscapes Certificate explores landscape design issues in the urban environment, and applies landscape urbanism principles to a variety of urban conditions. Students investigate and discover design opportunities through ecological studies, planning concepts, project assignments to design public and open space frameworks, and sustainable design policies at the local, urban, and regional scales.
The Urban Landscapes Certificate is fully online and open to students studying from anywhere in the world.
With this certificate, you can learn more about working in landscape architecture—exploring a range of systems and scales within urban environments to examine functional landscapes and patterns of urban growth.
