The Landscape Architecture program at Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico offers two graduate degrees leading to a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA), both of which require Thesis work. By choosing appropriate elective courses at the graduate level, students can tailor the program to their specific area(s) of interest. A counselor will work closely with the student in order to carefully choose the elective coursework that fulfill each student’s professional expectations in breadth, as well as in depth.

|Landscape Program Mission
At Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico’s Landscape Architecture Master Degree Program, humanistic, intellectual, creative, and technological endeavors encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds to explore and excel in a discipline that impacts the public realm, the quality of life, the environment, and the future.
Our program strives to imbue students with social, ecological, and global responsibilities, empowering them with professional skills essential for inquiry, critical thinking, competent and creative ‘engagement’, and leadership through outstanding scholarship.
Our strongest students excel at communicating their intentions and realizations, also at conveying technological skills verbally and graphically, being passionate about the stewardship of the landscape entrusted to them, and to the people who everyday live, work and play in it.
The program aims to enable graduate students to enter the industry’s multivectorial workforce, pursue further studies at the Doctoral level or work in a research and educational environment.
