Hello? Like work for Disneyland!!!!!!!!! That would be awesome!

I've known Landscape Archs to get their degrees because they want to design for Disney's resorts, parks, etc.

Also, many Landscape Archs want to design city parks .. and I agree with the previous poster. You don't just have to mow lawns!

Why not work for a resort designing their landscape? Or a city? Or a university? Or a housing development?

Okay, sorry to post again (I responded to you on the other thread) but I want you to understand, the people who are on this thread and the other thread that keep suggesting you can do things like working with golf course design, or working for a city doing Urban/Park planning, don't understand the certificate you are getting.

The certificate you are getting will not give you the back ground necessary to take the LARE, which is what you take to get your Landscape Architecture license.

You can do a lot with your certificate, I am not trying to discourage you, I just keep seeing people post jobs that you will have a hard time getting.

If you are interested in design, you need to get a degree/certificate in landscape design or a degree/masters in Landscape Architecture.

I went to Penn State and we have a pretty good LARCH program.....

Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, Academic Programs -- Department of Landscape Architecture, Penn State

that link talks about potential jobs and I think that if this were an area in which you have a lot of passion, you could def get a job as landscape architects aren't too common (as compared to a business major...)

But do keep building your educational background, because if you do, you will be able to score the great jobs suggested here.
