NEWsWoRThy ] masTER of laNdscapE aRchITEcTuRE NEWsWoRThy The Bo ston Architectural College i s pleased to announce the addition of a Ma ster of Landscape Architecture program. Approval from the Ma ssa chusetts B oard of Higher Education for this five-ye ar profe ssiona l degree program at the graduate level wa s received in November, following a three- day team visit that resulted in a highly supportive report. The Ma ster of La ndscape A rchitecture Program at the Boston Architectural College w ill promote and support faculty and student interdisciplinary research and educ ation. The School of Landscape Architecture will a ct a s a repository of knowledge and research in the exploration of public green spac es, interstitial urban spa ce s, geology, hydrology, urban ecology, history, and culture in the greater Boston area . The BAC is fortunate to be located in one of the most vital urban c enters in the United States. This allows the opportunity to use the city of Boston as an urban laboratory to explore and research issues of sustainable landscapes at a range of sc a les that include the city, the surrounding watersheds, the region and the entire Northeast Corridor. Boston’s proximity to the ocean and its additional abundance of fresh water lake s, rivers, a nd streams allows students an opportunity to study and observe a range of hydrological conditions in an urban context that makes the location of our c ol lege particularly unique. In addition to the wide range of hydrological issues , the surrounding land has be en formed by a variety of natural forces that result in a range of diverse habitats that students may study inten sively. This friction bet ween the urba n built environment and the n atura l systems in which they are placed provides the foundation for our belief that students must develop robu st sy stemic thinking skills in order to solve the complex problem s that we face, in our contemporary society, in an innovative fa shion. The L a ndscape A rchitecture program has already been active in exploring these goals with work in the Ninth Ward in New Orleans, the coastal are as of Biloxi Mississippi, a Green Alley s initiative in Boston, involvement in work along the Rose Kennedy Greenway, and par ticipation in the Department of Energy Solar Decat hlon c ompetition.
