The Master of Advanced Studies in Landscape Architecture (MASLA) is a post-professional research degree offered in a two-year curriculum. Students work in independent research-based studies in collaboration with faculty members engaged in certain research themes. This immersive program are for those who wish to synthesize existing knowledge in landscape architecture and progress contemporary concepts in the field. Within the wider University community, students immerse themselves in a focused research environment enriched by resources and support from related disciplines such as community and regional planning, civil engineering, geography, and art history, visual and theory. The MASLA program is intended for qualified applicants with a previous professional degree with the capacity for independent research. The main criterion for admissions include a comprehensive proposal for their research and prior consultation with individual faculty members to discuss student’s ambitions and supported research topics. In due course, successful applicants will select a primary faculty member as their Thesis Committee Chair and a supervisory committee will be established.
Usually by the end of the two terms of study, and in consultation with their faculty mentor, MASLA students create their thesis proposal. The proposal will describe, in detail, the thesis research and the methodology for that research and how it will be aligned with the work of the faculty supervisor. When the proposal is accepted by their supervisory committee, the student may begin work on the MASLA thesis.
