The M.L.Arch. program consists of a combination of coursework and a practicum.
The undergraduate landscape architecture curriculum is a broad-based course of study that provides the skills necessary for professional practice. In addition to the required Landscape Architecture courses, students are expected to fulfill college requirements in biological, physical and social sciences, humanities, and written and oral expression.
Landscape Architecture is the perfect combination of art and science, urban and rural, living systems and sculptural form, historical precedent and innovative vision. It is the profession of the future.
The complex relationship between humans and our environment requires us to choose when and how to modify or conserve the land areas we use. Designated open spaces, parks and modern neighborhoods are all products of landscape architecture. UC Davis' landscape architecture program, one of the foremost in the nation, stresses the vital role of the landscape architect in striking a balance between urban expansion and environmental preservation. The program is fully accredited by the American Society of Landscape Architects, which is the only organization sanctioned to grant such accreditations in the United States. Landscape architecture majors learn to solve problems creatively and to visualize spaces and three-dimensional concepts effectively.
The Department of Landscape Architecture at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey is situated within the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. We are physically located on Rutgers' historic Cook Campus. At the undergraduate level, our department includes two degree programs – an accredited Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture (LA) and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Planning (EPD). At the graduate level, we offer a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) degree, which is offered in three options: The accredited MLA1 serves students without accredited undergraduate degrees. The MLA2 is designed for landscape architects seeking to specialize. Our 4+1 program allows students to merge undergraduate and graduate studies. Both professional Landscape Architecture programs are nationally accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB). Our mission is to provide leadership in the design and stewardship of the environment. We are committed to sustainable and resilient solutions to improve human and environmental health and well-being, for now and for the future. Our interdisciplinary approach to these solutions, which is both analytical and creative, makes us distinct within our university. We are engaging students in art, science, theory, and practice. The Environmental Planning and Design program gives students a foundation in natural and social sciences, planning and policy, in an effort to foster ethical solutions to critical environmental issues. This program shares approaches and methodologies with Ecology, Human Ecology, Environmental Sciences, and other related programs within our school and the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. The interdisciplinary components of Landscape Architecture are linked together through creative design. Exploring problems through the iterative process of design makes this program unique within SEBS, this approach has more parallels to fine art than to sciences. However, our position within SEBS makes us distinctive among other LA programs which are mostly housed in design schools. This provides our students with many avenues to examine the evolution of ideas shaping the interaction of people and place, and to increase understanding of ecological communities and their integration in the designed landscape.
Landscape architecture encompasses the design, analysis, planning, management, and stewardship of sustainable environments. Landscape architects design and engage the landscape across a wide range of projects and scales - from garden to plaza, to park, to entire regional landscapes. Projected demand for landscape architectural services outpaces current supply, and is expected to remain strong with a growing emphasis on sustainable design. Graduates can look forward to many employment and professional opportunities including work in private practice, multidisciplinary firms, and public agencies. Virginia Tech offers an accredited five-year bachelor of landscape architecture degree in a highly selective program in the School of Architecture + Design. Students are educated to be independent thinkers in a program where theoretical and applied approaches to design are emphasized. Students often work with communities addressing real issues on actual sites. The studio sequence culminates in a year-long capstone project developed with a faculty advisor. The program provides: opportunities to specialize in site design, urban design, ecological design, environmental planning and design, and regional landscape planning; an environment for collaborative learning with other disciplines in the School of Architecture + Design; access to state-of-the-art technology and resources; opportunities for education abroad in Europe and Asia; opportunities for professional internships; pre-professional experience through the college's Community Design Assistance Center; preparation for a profession that is licensed/certified in 49 states; opportunities for further study at advanced degree levels.
