Faculty: Faculty of Applied Science
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Landscape Architecture (BS, BSLA, BLA, MSLA, MLA, PhD)
Description The Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) graduate degree program offers an accredited three-year curriculum. This professional course of study is highly demanding with a large proportion of the curriculum being required coursework. Design studios are integrated with courses in landscape history and theory, site analysis and planning, and management of environments. Within this challenging program, opportunities to develop individual identity and special skills are made possible through the selection of specialized topic design studios, thoughtful engagement with electives, and especially through the execution of the Graduation Project. The academics are coupled with experience in the contemporary profession with internships available for credits. By working in firms or agencies related to student's areas of interest, design development, and documentation skills are honed for future practice. Students build and expand their professional network through these positions and small student-faculty ratios. The School coordinates a public lecture series with students, faculty, and guests from local landscape architecture affiliates. These informal discourses offer feedback and advice from a broad audience for students presenting their initiatives and projects. Our full-time faculty and local professional design community are actively involved in studio reviews, graduation project committees, and mentorship programs. Within the Faculty of Applied Science, students have access to a research library ranked among the best in Canada and other faculty in engineering or community and regional planning. With Study Abroad, there are opportunities to be engaged with the ever-changing cultural concerns in architecture and landscape architecture.
