Landscape Architecture
How to Apply

The Graduate Program in Landscape Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin engages ecological, social, and sensory dimensions of the built environment to create resilient, equitable, and vibrant places in our rapidly changing world. Our professional and post-professional curricula bring together theories to comprehend landscapes in their specific contexts, methods to understand the effects of possible change, and practices to enable design-based action.

OUR OBJECT IS LANDSCAPE
When we think about landscape, we think about interrelationships. Landscape is perceived through interrelationships between self and site. Landscape is understood through interrelationships between performance and appearance. Landscape is evolved though interrelationships between biophysical processes and social practices.

OUR INVOLVEMENT IS DESIGN
When we think about design, we think about positive, informed, and inclusive change. Design motives stem from ambitions to improve current conditions. Design thinking combines analysis and composition to comprehend, critique, and respond to complex conditions. Design agency is advanced by diverse community engagement, reflective practices, and rigorous research.

OUR CONTRIBUTION IS IMPROVING THE PUBLIC REALM
When we think about how we contribute as professionals and as members of our communities, we think about the public realm. The designed public landscape provides ecosystem services and civic infrastructure. The designed public landscape promotes personal well-being and social benefit. The designed public landscape becomes meaningful by being purposeful, responsible, and lasting.
