The MLA I track is three years in length and is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in a field other than landscape architecture or architecture. Students come from diverse backgrounds with degrees in a variety of disciplines including ecology, business, political science, literature, art, and history. In this way the program is enriched through students‘ interdisciplinary interests and knowledge. The core curriculum in the first year provides students with foundational professional skills in design, site and landscape planning, construction materials and processes, and graphic, written and verbal communication. In the second and third years students develop these primary knowledge areas in order to develop leadership abilities in the definition, research, and practice of design.
The MLA II track is two years in length and is designed for applicants with a previous design degree in Landscape Architecture, Environmental Design, Urban Design, or Architecture. Those with degrees in related fields will be considered on an individual case, but it is generally assumed that without the appropriate training provided by a previous professional design degree program, students will be enrolled in the MLA I program. MLA II students build on their previous design education (and practice if appropriate) to expand their creative capacities, advance their technical knowledge and skills, and enrich their leadership abilities in the design disciplines. These students join the MLA I students in the second year of the program enrolling in advanced studios, research seminars, and elective areas of interest in addition to a capstone project in the final year.
