NHTI’s Landscape and Environmental Design degree program educates you to be a future steward of the natural environment. It combines coursework in natural science, technology, and design to help you understand the natural environment and its relationship to the built environment. The program includes a core foundation of education and skills that lead to advanced study or entry-level careers in environmental industry. This is the only college-level, credit-bearing landscape design program in the Northeast.
My associates degree in Landscape and Environmental Design was key in the advancement of my career. Not only did it supply me with the adequate credits to transfer into the University of Rhode Island Landscape Architecture program, it was a keystone to the information I use on a daily basis. In many ways I had more/different skill set with my associates degree than the Juniors I matriculated to. The ability to tap into resources with the Community College programing should not be overlooked.
I learned so much from the program, I’m really grateful that we have something local and affordable that taught me what I needed. And I do have to say, your last class really brought everything together for me. It answered a lot of questions that I had about being a professional in the field. And I appreciate all the personal attention you gave to me. It was tremendously helpful. I look forward to staying in touch and hopefully seeing you at some upcoming events!
The landscape design program at NHTI helped me gain experience while working in the green industry. Now that I have my certificate, I'm continuing my education in horticulture at Oklahoma State University.
You will learn the art and science involved in Landscape Design ... with environmental integrity being the driving factor. You will learn from a very highly accomplished staff of licensed landscape architects, engineers and certified professionals within the landscape trade. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff and the Landscape Design program offered at NHTI, because without them I would not be as successful as I am today.
