The Department of Landscape Architecture embraces a broad conception of the term “creative work” ranging from pencil sketching to poetry; however, for the purpose of indicating an aptitude for landscape architecture, portfolio work should focus on visually expressive examples, including both traditional and digital media. In particular, we are interested in seeing examples of freehand drawing, either from college or high school studio art coursework, or generated on your own time. Please review our presentation on portfolio preparation to learn more about the types of work that would be appropriate to submit (see link below).
Portfolio reviews are used to determine a student’s placement in the required BLA studio sequence as follows:
Applicants for fall entry must submit their portfolio for studio placement by April 1. Applicants for spring semester must submit their portfolio before an admissions decision or studio placement will be made and no later than November 1. Placement in studios and consideration for admission will be made on a space available basis if portfolios are received after these deadlines. Please click on the links below for instructions on submitting portfolios for fall applicants and spring applicants.
