The K-State 8 General Education areas are covered by courses required in the Landscape Architecture curriculum. Information about the K-State 8 is available on the web and in the university catalog.
All required courses taught in the landscape architecture and regional and community planning programs that are counted toward the degree must be passed with a grade of C or better.
*A minimum of fifteen (15) general elective credits must be taken. General elective may be taken in pursuit of a minor. They may be taken any time prior to or during the Landscape Architecture program and may include KSU approved AP, IB, CLEP and transfer credit. Students may not count more than three (3) total hours of recreation credits toward graduation.
**Eighth semester: Two distinct study opportunities are offered during this semester, each requiring 14 credit hours.

LAR 897 students work independently to develop their thesis proposal with their major professor’s supervision. LAR 899-Research in Landscape Architecture will be taken in the ninth semester in place of LAR 700 and in the tenth semester in place of LAR 705 and LAR 898.
