Creativity has often been described as “thinking outside the box.” For landscape architects, thinking outside the box means developing creative design solutions for the built and natural environments that we find outside every day. They combine the art of design with environmental sciences and cultural understanding to reach a balance between the natural and man-made landscapes.

The landscape architecture program at Texas Tech offers a first professional degree program for both undergraduates (Bachelor of Landscape Architecture – B.L.A.) and graduates (Master of Landscape Architecture – M.L.A.). It is accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board and all instructors have practiced professionally. The program is committed to providing students with the technical knowledge and creative skills necessary to respond to the unique cultural and environmental challenges of the region in order to assure the quality of life for its citizens and communities.
