The Master of Landscape Architecture is an intercollegiate program composed of faculty from the College of Architecture and Design, the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, and related colleges and disciplines. Faculty in the College of Architecture and Design and the College of Agricultural Science and Natural Resources are responsible for the core curriculum. The first professional degree (MLA Track I) is largely designed to prepare students as critically engaged and well-trained practitioners. The post-professional degree (MLA Track II) provides opportunities for research-oriented studies located in subdisciplines as well as self-directed research in alternative areas of interest. (For a full program description, see Landscape Architecture in the College of Architecture and Design section of this catalog.)
