Students at PLUS develop the understanding, sensitivity, and skills necessary to design strategic spatial responses to rapid economic, environmental, political and technological changes. As a result of the diverse fields that are drawn upon in landscape and environmental planning, our curriculum provides students with a wide knowledge base addressing economic, physical, ecological, governance, and aesthetic issues.
The Chair is built on a distinguished faculty and excellent students. Many of the faculty are engaged in current professional and civic work in addition to pioneering research and publications. A number of part-time faculty who are active full-time professionals also contribute to the course offerings.
