Multiple Degree Programs: MS, MLA, PhD

  • The degree Master of Science in Natural Resources and Environment is the largest program at SEAS. Our Master of Landscape Architecture degree — typically a three-year program — is both one of the nation’s oldest and among the very few programs in the world that employ ecological principles authentically in environmentally responsible design. The elite PhD program includes five years of full funding.
  • All master’s degree students complete an opus — a thesis or major project. Thesis is the more traditional option; project is the more popular. Master’s thesis work spans the entire program, while project work spans roughly 15 months. Projects are conducted by interdisciplinary student teams working with real-world clients on actual sustainability issues.
