Landscape ArchitectureOktibbeha County Heritage Museum award

The Department of Landscape Architecture at Mississippi State University has pledged to "foster the will and ability to plan, design, build, and manage regenerative communities" through our mission statement. We believe that the professions of Landscape Architecture and Landscape Contracting should strive to connect art, culture, and the environment to provide society with places that people love and that are cognizant of a holistic, ecological model of design. Our students explore subjects such as the design process, storm water design, energy flow, native landscapes and plant materials, green infrastructure, sustainability, community planning, and regional planning.
