Environmental Planning and Design Curriculum Reform Approved by SEBS Academic Forum

The SEBS Academic Forum approved the curriculum reform for the Major BS Environmental Planning and Design. This reform is a consequence of the introduction of the BS Landscape Architecture; the first BSLA class will graduate this spring.

Although we now have two majors, the collaboration between Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning has increased. For examples, both share now a list of core courses. This will make the transition between options easier and will allow students to make informed decisions between one of the EP&D options and the BSLA after the fall of the sophomore year.

The entering EP&D students have the choice to follow the current curriculum or select the 2014 version. All current EP&D sophomores, juniors and seniors will complete their program following the old curriculum.
