University of Georgia College of Environment and Design
Initiated in 1954, Georgia’s MLA program is one of the oldest graduate landscape architectural programs in the country, with the largest and most complete landscape architectural faculty anywhere. Among Georgia’s MLA alumni are winners of national design competitions, Presidents and Fellows of the American Society of Landscape Architects, heads of prestigious university departments, senior editors of national journals, leaders of the National Park Service and other public institutions, most of the designers of the 1996 Olympic venues, and leading practitioners all over the world.
Georgia provides landscape architecture education that is broad and adaptable to the interests of individual students. The MLA program employs student-defined research to develop the unique professional roles of its students, producing graduates who can use the powers of scholarship, design, and communication to discover, advocate, and implement superior landscape solutions.
Georgia employs the largest full-time landscape architecture faculty in the country, ensuring that all specializations within the field are represented. Small graduate classes within the large, diverse school are supportive of intellectual and social debates. The Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture (MLA) at the University of Georgia provides the foundational knowledge, practical skills and design expertise needed to engage in the practice of landscape architecture. In addition, it provides students the opportunity to focus and define their unique position within the profession through scholarly discovery in an interdisciplinary environment. Georgia MLA students are prepared to lead the profession as outstanding practitioners, educators, and scholars in the design, management, and environmental stewardship of the natural and built environment.For more information, visit the College of Environment and Design's website.
