What will I learn?

The Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) is offered as a two-year, full-time degree programme. It is distinctively Asian and pantropical in its geographic attention, and urban in its emphasis. We aim to provide a landscape architecture education that is sensitive to the myriad challenges facing Asian cities, as well as opportunities provided by the sheer richness of heritage and cultural, socio-economic and ecological elements of the region. As a research intensive university, we adopt a research centric approach our teaching, necessitated by the constant evolution of the knowledge domains the field encompasses. Design is a core emphasis, but it is grounded in socio-cultural sensitivities, ecological knowledge and grasp of emergent technologies and techniques. Our location in Singapore, with its diversity of culture and cosmopolitan outlook, and where urban greening is a cornerstone of its urban development approach, provides an enriching backdrop to our training of landscape architects.

Our Goal is to train the next generation of landscape architects in practice and academia who will be stewards in shaping a liveable, sustainable and resilient environment. Our graduates are expected to be able to navigate the demands of the profession, and the dynamism and challenges the environment presents.
