FROM THE LAB TO THE LAND
A Living Systems, Practical Strategy for Regenerating Resources
Our program is built on a strong basic and applied science foundation and is integrated with chemistry, biology, landscape architecture and horticulture. The curriculum is structured to develop the analytic, scientific and applied skills required to properly plan and manage our environment. Through our practical, hands-on approach, we apply classroom theory to real sites. Since the land is complex and is built on interconnecting systems, we address and resolve multiple issues in a comprehensive manner rather than focusing on a single use.
Small classes, individual attention, the hands-on experience, and working with real sites with real stakeholders offer a unique invaluable opportunity. On-going research projects allow undergraduate students to prepare for advanced studies in graduate programs.
