According to the University of Arkansas, "the landscape architecture program focuses on design and site planning, balancing the art and science of designing on the land. Today, our students enjoy a strong placement rate in prestigious firms across the United States. We emphasize urban design, wetland reclamation, and the design of public memorials, parks and gardens. Because we learn from and build upon the past, history and landscape preservation are important components of the program."
