The Department of Landscape Architecture offers a comprehensive and accredited first professional Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA), a research-focused, post-professional Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA), and a Doctor of Philosophy in Landscape Architecture (PhD). The breadth of the profession of landscape architecture and our relationships with other departments at the University of Oregon allow students to pursue concurrent master’s degrees with other departments in the College of Design (e.g., Community and Regional Planning, Nonprofit Management) or specializations elsewhere in the university (e.g., Ecological Design Certificate or Graduate Specialization in Food Studies).
Let Us Show You Around
Visiting the UO is one of the best ways to learn about us. We encourage applicants to visit our facilities and meet faculty members and students in our programs. We offer departmental tours during most of the year.
Amanda Craig’s landscape architecture skills serve the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians, including her own tribe, the Hanis Coos. Craig, a Master of Landscape Architecture student, is helping design the tribes’ interpretative center by balancing function with a focus on traditional materials including native species.
Awarded annually, graduate fellowships provide opportunities for financial support, as well as teaching and professional experience.
We are the only program in Oregon with BLA and MLA programs accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB).
