Apply to the Professional Landscape Architecture Program

After completing second and third-year requirements, you are eligible to apply to the professional landscape architecture program. Your application must include a portfolio of your design work, transcript and GPA (minimum 3.0 GPA required).

If You...

Students with a degree from a different discipline at the University of Idaho or another university may apply to the three-year professional MLA degree. Students admitted to this program participate in an accelerated “bridging year” and then move directly into the graduate studio with students pursuing the MLA program.

Students who already have a degree in Landscape Architecture from another university may apply for the 1.5 -2 Year Post Professional version of the MLA. This option is desirable for students who may wish to pursue a research specialization in Landscape Architecture, consider teaching at the university level and/or obtain their MLA to advance their career.
