Welcome to the Landscape Architecture Program in the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of British Columbia. We are a close community committed to providing an outstanding and distinctive professional education that will prepare graduates to be agents of beautiful and sustainable landscape change through design.
Our faculty have a broad range of interests yet share deeply rooted environmental and social values. We intentionally engage the public realm in this unique British Columbia environment across scales from urban squares to watersheds. In our work and teaching we support and thrive on this region’s commitment to quality design and sustainability. Through research, practice and professional education, the faculty and students use the local and regional landscape as a laboratory for inquiries about ecosystem health, sustainability and exemplary landscape design.
We offer two masters programs in landscape architecture: the first professional Master of Landscape Architecture for students from a broad range of academic backgrounds who are seeking a professional education and admission to the profession of landscape architecture; and the Master of Advanced Studies in Landscape Architecture a non-professional research program that provides students an opportunity to examine specific issues relating to landscape, place and environment.
