    If you have a college degree in interior design, California College of the Arts is actually pretty receptive to unknown interior designers with experience. Also, be sure to do research on the requirements for landscape architects and what universities are best for your desired career path before applying. If you don't have a college degree in interior design but still want to pursue this as a career- many CCAs will offer full-time semester degrees in Interior Design and some even offer online degrees too.

    For students who want learn landscape architecture without being in a 4-year degree program, consider taking some undergraduate courses in interior design. It will be more affordable (tuition can run up to $40,000 for a year of full time schooling) and you might be able to transfer those credits back into an undergraduate program at if you decide to change your mind.
    If you're not on the West Coast, try contacting schools that offer 2-year programs in landscape architecture or environmental science and see what they have to say about transferring credits. To become certified by the California Landscape Architects Board, applicants must first complete three years of post-graduate study at an accredited college or university with formal training in not less than one.

    To become a landscape architect, you need to first get the degree in Urban Planning (or Landscape Design). Afterwards, focus on learning about interior design. This will teach you necessary skills such as how street scape planning can affect different parts of your business, and practical advice for architects seeking a sustainable approach to characterizing their work. A lot has been written lately about the importance of sustainability for the future growth of our industry, but most attention spent on architectural practices is currently published in professional journals mainly aimed at conservations. By gaining insight into all aspects that affect architecture and firms today from an inside-out perspective through interior design principles and spatial strategy, one can remain competitive in their own respective field while advancing the profession.
