College of Agriculture and Natural Resources offers new landscape architecture major

A new landscape architecture major has been established in the University of Delaware’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) for students looking to combine their technical skills with their creative ones to tackle real world issues through environmental problem-solving. Jules Bruck, associate professor of landscape design who was recently appointed to the Delaware Board of Landscape Architecture, will serve as the director of the program for the next three years. She said that adding a landscape architecture program has been talked about at CANR for quite some time.

To make the landscape architecture major a reality, a committee in the college worked closely over the course of two years with faculty members in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, which houses the major, as well as with a focus group of professionals in the field who weighed in on what they would like to see in the program.
