Landscape Architecture at NC State College of Design has a rich legacy and reputation built on preparing graduates for the rigors of professional practice, leadership, community engagement and research. Richness of academic opportunity produces highly skilled graduates, competitive in the job market, who become leaders within the profession and their communities. Graduates are employed in consulting firms, municipal, state and federal agencies, universities, land trusts, start-ups, and new enterprises, engaged in the ever broadening range of activities that embodies landscape architecture.
Our mission is to teach, learn, research, and apply state of the art practices that create innovative and resilient solutions for landscape situations focused on human and ecosystem health, social equity, and quality of life.
We emphasize evidence based inquiry and design thinking that positions students and graduates to engage with and propel the landscape architecture profession into the future as it evolves in response to environmental and societal imperatives.
