The UT School of Landscape Architecture is an exciting interdisciplinary degree program made possible by a partnership between the College of Architecture and Design and the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. By leveraging award-winning faculty expertise, newly updated facilities and technological resources, and strategic relationships of both colleges, the program is advantageously positioned to deliver an education in landscape architecture that is balanced across the applied arts and applied sciences. This partnership further enables the program to cultivate in our students the same spirit of collaboration that is so fundamental to contemporary research and practice of the profession.

The School offers four degrees: an accredited professional Master of Landscape Architecture degree (MLA), two non-professional degrees which are the Master of Arts in Landscape Architecture (MALA) and the Master of Science in Landscape Architecture (MSLA), and the post-professional Master of Landscape Architecture II (MLA II) degree.
