Landscape Architecture is the art of planning the appropriate use of land and designing the built environment based on an understanding of natural and cultural site characteristics, human need, and sound artistic and technical competence.


The scope of landscape architecture includes site design, land use, and urban planning at all scales. The landscape architect normally is responsible for the organization and placement of buildings, recreational facilities, roads, grading, and planting design.

The Temple University Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture program is four-year, 124 credit-hour curriculum. It is accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board of the American Society of Landscape Architects. It was re-accredited June 2016.

At Temple you will be taught to find the appropriate functional and ecological "fit," by using a design approach and techniques that work with and protect the natural environment.
