Landscape architects aim to create places that provide stimulating, satisfying and uplifting experiences. They must also meet socio economic and functional needs, while sustaining and enhancing ecological and cultural values.
The Master of Landscape Architecture offers an innovative and successful professional design programme as well as an active centre for landscape research and scholarship.
Design, planning and management are learnt through undertaking a series of real world projects.
The MLA is an internationally recognised programme that offers the opportunity for professional accreditation to the NZILA.
The MLA is offered in 1, 1.5, and 2 year formats depending on entry qualifications. Students normally take a minimum of 18 months to complete an MLA by examination and thesis, or may choose the equivalent in part-time study.
