Landscape Studies Minor - Undergrad
The Minor in Landscape Studies enables students to gain considerable knowledge of the ecological, social, cultural and historical factors that have shaped landscapes of the western and non-western world. Students interested in integrative studies of the natural, cultural and built environment, and those concerned with landscape as context for art and design, will develop a comprehensive theoretical framework for work in their major field of study.
