Overview

Bachelor of Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture is the art and science of designing and conserving land and water for human use and enjoyment. As a profession, Landscape Architecture is concerned with two scales of planning and design.

The first scale is with the development of specific sites for residential, recreational, institutional, commercial and industrial projects. The second scale pertains to the regional landscape where the issues include management plans for forest, park and recreation areas, agricultural lands protection, gravel pit mining and restoration, hazard land studies, and visual resource analysis.

The Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) program is a professional undergraduate degree that combines design and science. It is the only accredited undergraduate landscape architecture program in Canada and it has an established international reputation for producing highly skilled landscape architects.

As a landscape architect, you will create and improve natural and built environments using art, technology, natural systems and an understanding of human behaviour. You’ll graduate prepared to design communities, neighborhoods, urban centres, play spaces and outdoor recreational areas anywhere in the world. The challenge? Designing places that are as attractive as they are useful and sustainable.

You’ll learn from talented professionals and have freedom to explore ideas. Similar in format to a studio art program, your projects are self-directed and require verbal and design skills. Studio projects and design workshops help you understand the professional methods that ensure design success. Students find work placements through our large (and global) alumni network, and enjoy the opportunity to study for a semester abroad. This is the only accredited program of its kind in Canada.

*The landscape architecture program is fully accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Council (LAAC) of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects, meeting the educational requirements for entry into the professional associations of landscape architects across Canada, North America, and abroad.
