Landscape Architecture

Faculty

University of Maryland Landscape Architecture faculty have a wide variety of educational backgrounds (landscape architecture, art, biology, plant science, environmental planning, city and regional planning, and geography) and academic and professional experiences. Our collaborative scholarship, creative research, innovative teaching, and service reinforce an interdisciplinary and systems approach to design, planning, and management that are the hallmark of landscape architectural practice. We stress the importance of solving problems responsibly and imaginatively. The studio experience engages students in the process of creating comprehensive alternatives for real and hypothetical design interventions in cultural and natural landscapes. We hope you will consider joining us in protecting and restoring sensitive and critical environments, and creating socially equitable, ecologically sustainable, and economically viable landscapes.
