The Department of Landscape Architecture and the Human Dimensions of Natural Resources and the Environment (HDNRE) program offer a dual-title masters degree program in Landscape Architecture and HDNRE. The HDNRE program is a transdisciplinary, intercollege program that exposes students to issues including, but not limited to global climate change; sustainable energy, food, and fiber supplies; threats to biodiversity; water pollution and availability; genetic modification; and sustainable design.
The goal of the dual-title M.S. degree Landscape Architecture and Human Dimensions of Natural Resources and the Environment is to enable graduate students from Landscape Architecture to acquire the knowledge and skills of their major area of specialization in Landscape Architecture, while at the same time gaining the perspective and methods of Human Dimensions of Natural Resources and the Environment.
For admission to the dual-title degree under this program, students must apply and be admitted to the graduate program in Landscape Architecture and The Graduate School before applying for admission to the dual-title degree program. After admission to the primary program, students must apply for admission to and meet the admissions requirements of the HDNRE dual-title program.
Students must satisfy the requirements of both the Landscape Architecture and the HDNRE programs. The student prepares one integrated thesis reflecting the student’s education and interest in both Landscape Architecture and HDNRE. The student’s thesis committee for the dual-title M.S. degree include at least one graduate faculty member from the HDNRE program.
