This unique program is recommended for students interested in designing environments - large or small, rural or urban - which look good, meet people's needs, and respect natural processes. This six-year coordinated degree program results in a bachelors degree from Augustana and a master's degree in landscape architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After three years at Augustana and one year at Illinois, the student receives an A.B. degree from Augustana; after the third year at the University, the student receives the degree of Master of Landscape Architecture. The landscape architecture program at the University of Illinois is considered one of the best in the country, and its graduates have been very successful in securing professional employment with private companies and public agencies.
While at Augustana, students major in geography and take other courses preparatory to a landscape architecture program, such as art and design, botany, ecology, computer science, microeconomics, and social psychology. Students must have at least a 3.0 grade-point average to be considered for admission to the University of Illinois. At the university, students take specialized courses in landscape architecture and design.
