George Washington University Graduate Certificates and Master's Degree in Landscape Design & Sustainable Landscapes
GW's Landscape Design Program strives to be the mid-Atlantic source for highly professional education in small-scale landscape design. Maintaining an emphasis on rigorous design-based scholarship, the program seeks to sponsor healthy, safe and environmentally responsible life-styles in our neighborhoods through best practices in landscape design.
Courses are taught by experienced professionals, designers and landscape architects, who are actively practicing in their field. Courses are geared to small-scale residential and other landscape design applications with emphasis on sound design principles, good site engineering methods and the creative use of plant materials.
The newly-launched Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Landscapes adds a solid understanding of the economic benefits of sustainable and energy-efficient landscape design. It includes the study of plants native to the Chesapeake Bay watershed, of best management practices for water and energy efficiency, using materials that promote good design for biodiversity and sustainable goals.
