About

We offer a master degree in Landscape Architecture at the University of Manitoba. Landscape Architecture is a creative profession concerned with analysis, planning, design and management of the land at scales varying from whole regions to small individual sites.

Overview

Landscape architects integrate and apply knowledge of ecology, socio-cultural factors, economics and aesthetics to create environments that are functional, innovative, sustainable, appropriate and attractive. Desirable personal attributes include a creative imagination, problem-solving skills and good graphics and verbal communication skills.

The Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) program was established in 1972. It was the first graduate program in Landscape Architecture in Canada. It has graduated more than 300 students, many of whom now occupy senior positions in the profession. The program offered by the University of Manitoba requires a minimum of two full years of study to complete. 

Approximately 60 students are currently enrolled in the MLA program. They originate from all regions of Canada and from many other countries. The program is accredited by the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects in association with the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board of the United States. The last accreditation assessment was held in March 2015 and granted accreditation of the program until 2021.
