Landscape architects design places that connect people to the natural world, creating landscapes for people’s everyday lives and their most memorable moments. The Master of Landscape Architecture degree prepares students to address the present and future environmental and urbanization challenges of our world.
Landscape architecture encompasses analysis, planning, design, management and stewardship of urban, suburban and rural environments. The profession includes the design of green spaces such as plazas, gardens and parks. On a broader scale, landscape architects analyze sites to determine their most appropriate future uses and management practices, including the arrangement of buildings, transportation, and pedestrian and green infrastructure systems.
- The degree is offered through two tracks:
- The non-baccalaureate track for students without a previous degree allows students to enter as freshmen and progress through the professional graduate degree in landscape architecture
The post-baccalaureate track for students with a previous degree allows completion of a first professional degree in landscape architecture.
Both lead to an MLA degree fully accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
