The Landscape Architecture curriculum at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo celebrates its 40 anniversary this year (2013).  The program prepares students for professional careers dedicated to planning, designing, and managing landscapes essential to the well-being of a healthy society and natural environment.  Landscape Architects shape the world we live in, and therefore, the curriculum is structured to help students develop the values, knowledge, and skills necessary to address human and societal needs within a broad range of project types and environmental scales. The Landscape Architecture Department is one of five departments in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at California Polytechnic State University.  During its 40 years, the Landscape Architecture Program has awarded over 1100 Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture degrees.
