VIII. Graduate Programs
The MLA program is designed for students with a previous degree in a field unrelated to landscape architecture; for students who hold other professional degrees in architecture, planning and engineering; and for students who have received a BLA degree and are interested in advanced education in a particular area of landscape architecture. The MLA program emphasizes research, analysis, planning, design and management of landscapes ranging in scale from individual sites to entire communities and regions. The MLA program is accredited by the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects. This accreditation is also recognized by the American Society of Landscape Architects.
Admission to the MLA program is not restricted to holders of the BLA degree. Strongly motivated graduates of honours programs in a variety of disciplines may be admissible under the normal Faculty of Graduate Studies admission requirements. Well prepared applicants will have studied as broadly as possible in their undergraduate programs.
Application deadline and additional information on the MLA program at the University of Guelph can be obtained from our internet address at: http://www.uoguelph.ca/sedrd/LA/
Students are encouraged to relate their major emphasis in the MLA to their undergraduate discipline through course work and thesis.
