NSAD introduces new MLA program

Enrollment is open for the inaugural quarter of the Master of Landscape Architecture program at New School of Architecture and Design (NSAD). The three-year program, which begins in the fall of 2010, emphasizes contemporary issues such as urban sprawl, demands for clean water and healthy food, and coastal developments. It also explores the political and ecological considerations of California and Mexico’s shared border.

“NewSchool is filling a long-standing need to further environmental design in one of California’s most vibrant landscapes,” said Dr. Steven Altman, NSAD’s president. “The landscape architecture program builds on the school’s commitment to urban sustainability and improving the quality of life in the built and natural environments.”

It’s  good to see a Landscape Architect in a newspaper highlighting the role of the profession. Maybe if your currently unemployed or underemployed it might be good idea to contact your local or city newspaper and offer to write an article about the profession.
