Title: Evidence-Based Landscape Architecture through Education in North America
Author: Ibey, David
Department: School of Environmental Design and Rural Development
Program: Landscape Architecture
Advisor: Corry, Robert
Abstract: In order to understand whether landscape architects are adequately equipped with the skills to apply research findings to solve practical design problems, this study explores research education in landscape architecture curricula. Phased questionnaires were used to acquire general program information from program contacts and then to generate more specific research course information. Graduate programs were more likely to require students to complete at least one research course, however 325 of 706 of all students represented in the sample were required to take a research course. Research coursework responses revealed a significant, positive correlation between difficulty level of instruction and minimum required competency. The relationship between research instruction level, competency, and ability to practice evidence-based landscape architecture is discussed.
