LA @ UConn

Educational Experience

The landscape architecture program at the University of Connecticut (UConn) is the only accredited program of its kind in Connecticut, and one of only five in New England. LA @ UConn offers a Bachelor of Science degree in landscape architecture, with a core curriculum that takes three years to complete.


Students who declare as landscape architecture majors as freshman or join prior to the sophomore year typically complete their degree in four years. Students who join later in their academic career typically take three years from the time they join us to complete the degree.


LA @ UConn currently has about 50 undergraduate students, a small group of graduate students, and 5 faculty members closely involved. Small studio sizes allow students and faculty to form a strong, close-knit community, with plenty of face-to-face interaction.


The curriculum is studio- and design-based. Creative problem solving is developed, creative thought is encouraged, and the ability to present ideas graphically and verbally is enhanced. At the same time, students learn technical information and skills that will prepare them for the planning, design, and construction aspects of the profession.

Student Achievement

Students develop substantial knowledge and skills related to land planning, site design, and site construction. Graduates from the program have gone on to attend high-level graduate programs, work in nationally recognized firms, and become leaders at the state and local levels.

We recognize student success through:

  •  ASLA certificate of Honor and Merit Awards

  •  Landscape Architecture Foundation Olmsted Scholar Program

  •  LA @ UConn Outstanding Senior Design Award

  •  Multiple scholarships

  •  Support of internships and other professional development opportunities
