The Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture (MLA) at the University of Georgia’s College of Environment and Design provides the foundational knowledge, practical skills and design expertise needed to engage in both public service and private practice of landscape architecture.


About this Degree

It provides, through community engagement in service learning projects, development of the knowledge, skills and values required to attend to the health, safety and welfare needs of people, communities and the environment.

In addition, it affords students the opportunity to focus and define their unique position within the profession through scholarly discovery, preparing them for a leadership role in practice, or a possible future in academia. The CED’s MLA program prepares students to lead the profession as outstanding practitioners, educators and scholars in the planning, design, and management of the natural and built environment.

The MLA Landscape Architecture at the University of Georgia offers thesis and nonthesis options. The nonthesis option has a greater focus on research-based design. The non-thesis option will still require a defense and a positive committee vote to successfully complete the program.
