Landscape architects design places that connect people to the natural world. Landscape architects . . .

  • Design places that connect people to the natural world.
  • Create landscapes for people’s everyday lives and their most memorable moments.
  • Conserve and restore landscapes.
  • Remake cities for brighter, greener futures.

The Master of Landscape Architecture program is composed of a broad range of activities in the studio, classrooms and field study weaving together design, ecology and technology. Our students progress from foundational coursework to a final, independent project or thesis demonstrating their leadership and professional knowledge and skills.

Landscape architecture students are engaged in collaborative projects with students in the other design disciplines as well as faculty and students from engineering, education, art and other disciplines. Located in the same department as regional and community planning, faculty and students from both programs work closely on planning and design problems that cover multiple scales and spectra. Integration of faculty research and creative activities into studios allows students to partner with faculty on projects exploring current topics in landscape architecture and assisting communities and clients.

We offer two tracks to the accredited Master of Landscape Architecture degree, STEM CIP 03.0103 Environmental Studies: a combined bachelor and master’s degree (non-baccalaureate) and a master’s degree (post-baccalaureate).
