The projects in the Landscape Architecture MLA program from Arizona State University can include large-scale work encompassing urban design, landscape reclamation, open space preservation planning and ecological landscape design, and projects at the more intimate scale of a neighborhood park or residential backyard. Emerging areas of focus include biotechnical design, construction of greenways, green roofs, living walls, and urban agriculture, as well as the design of healing environments.
The Design School is committed to the merging of global and local contexts and concerns and, toward this end, graduate students in their final year go abroad for two weeks as part of their studio course. To date, students have traveled to Argentina, England, Ethiopia, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Rwanda, Spain and Turkey. The school also offers a number of summer study abroad programs in an effort to extend the student opportunities for global engagement.
Alumni of this program have found careers with nationally recognized landscape architects in multinational firms, within public municipalities and agencies in the United States and abroad, and with urban greening nonprofit, community development and environmental justice organizations.
