Landscape Architecture

Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA)

Why choose Landscape Architecture?


The Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) in the Faculty of Environmental Design program is designed to engage with the critical sociocultural and ecological challenges of place-making, climate change and resilience. Our MLA is intended as a program for the 21st century - to be leaders and to train leaders in becoming catalysts for positive local and global change. 

The MLA is a three-year course-based program consisting of a foundation year plus two years at the Master’s level, and we'll be seeking accreditation through the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA). As a professional degree program, curriculum design and methods of delivery reflect the CSLA accreditation requirements.


​​The Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) is strategically positioned to engage with the critical sociocultural and ecological challenges of place-making, climate change and resilience in the 21st century. Combining lecture and studio-based course work with opportunities to study in Melbourne and Barcelona, the MLA’s interdisciplinary model allows students to learn along with planners and architects, developing a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of the built environment.
