Program Description

The fully accredited Master of Landscape Architecture program prepares students for a professional degree in one of the more exciting fields of the 21st century. Landscape architects are engaged in the meaningful and sustainable transformation of our built and natural environment. Our program focuses on design and draws from both art, science and technology via a rich design studio sequence that begins with a two year interdisciplinary foundation that is followed by three years of graduate studies. Students explore environmental, ecological and urban issues, and propose innovative solutions in the design of public spaces, infrastructure, urban planning, industrial reclamation, ecotourism, environmental mitigation and many other areas at the center of the relationship between human beings and their surroundings.
