Discover Landscape Architecture at Rhode Island School of Design

At RISD students in Landscape Architecture explore the discipline in all its breadth, from intensely personal artistic expressions to highly engineered technological interventions—with projects ranging dramatically in scale.

The Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) program

RISD's 2- and 3-year graduate programs in Landscape Architecture offer students the opportunity to address critical issues shaping the world's contemporary social, political and ecological landscapes. Throughout the program, degree candidates explore how design can address landscapes affected by climate change and urbanization, and improve social equity and public access to open space and resources.

Combining deep disciplinary immersion with explorations into artistic and inventive practices, students observe and analyze the environment and the built world, and use creative and intuitive practices to transform physical and social space.
