Are you interested in the environment, design, environmental justice, urban agriculture, impacts of climate change, resilient development? The Landscape Architecture program of Rutgers University emphasizes active engagement with all aspects of physical and cultural landscapes.


About the Program

If you are discovering landscape architecture a little later in life, this is your opportunity. The Landscape Architecture program of Rutgers University is a 3 year program designed for students with an undergraduate degree in a different field. This program and our undergraduate program are the only accredited Landscape Architecture programs in New Jersey. Our setting in central New Jersey, close to both Philadelphia and New York City, is providing us with ample opportunity to bring current and future challenges of urbanized America into the class room. We are distinct from other MLA programs because our location within the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences gives our creative design program a sustainable and scientific knowledge base.

Master of Landscape Architecture 2

If you already hold a professional degree in landscape architecture and want to give your professional career an extra push or you are interested in advancing in an academic setting, our MLA 2 is the perfect match for you. Our distinguished faculty excels in creative design explorations and scholarly research in fields such as community engagement and design, post-industrial landscapes, cultural landscape heritage and critical landscape theory, residential gardens and landscape materials, as well as ecological design on-site scale and regional scale.
