Applicants for admission to the program must have a strong academic record and demonstrate potential for creative problem solving. The Landscape Architecture Program selects students from a variety of disciplines on which to build landscape architectural understanding, competence, and the sharing of knowledge. Students entering the program should demonstrate interest and potential in the broad fields of environment, the creative arts, and landscape architecture.

Students are accepted into the three-year M.L.A. from all disciplines; applicants seeking admission into the two-year M.L.A. variant must be in possession of a four-year undergraduate degree in Architecture, Environmental Design, or Landscape Architecture. Approximately eighteen students will be admitted to either the three-year or two-year program each year. Certain students may be expected to fulfill additional requirements in order to adequately prepare them for design and environmental studies.

In addition, students are required to submit examples of their creative abilities in the form of an application portfolio and demonstrate, in writing, their understanding of the profession. The minimum TOEFL score required by international applicants is 600 (paper) or 100 (internet). Please contact us for detailed admission information.
