Students enrolled in other doctoral programs may pursue a doctoral minor in Landscape Architecture. Students with interest in gaining training in restoration ecology and ecological design, community and urban landscape studies, food and agriculture, natural resource management, cultural and environmental stewardship, human health and well-being, and community development to supplement their primary disciplinary program may consider an Option A minor in Landscape Architecture.

Graduate students who wish to pursue a doctoral minor in Landscape Architecture must have a Landscape Architecture faculty member serve as the minor professor on their research committees (oral preliminary exam committee and final exam committee).

Courses are chosen in conjunction with the minor professor and the committee to provide relevant breadth in the student's training. A student may earn a doctoral minor in Landscape Architecture with 9 graduate-level credits in Landscape Architecture. The proposed course plan to satisfy Option A minor must be approved by the minor professor.
