Program Structure

The Master of Landscape Architecture is a first professional degree at the Masters Level. It is a course-based degree which means no research thesis is required.  The Program curriculum incorporates the breadth of Canadian Society of Landscape Architects accreditation requirements and the Program was f accredited in 2018, three years after it admitted its first students. 

The three-year curriculum (Foundation Year plus two years (LA 1 and LA 2) is expected to be completed in 6 consecutive terms; less if you are admitted directly into LA 1 rather than the Foundation year.  The program is structured around a sequence of core design studios, technology courses, and design theory and methods courses. Because of this curriculum sequencing all applicants admitted to the MLA must enter the Program in the Fall term.
