    Landscape Architecture grad programs with ecology focus?

    Hi all!

    I'm new to the forums, so I hope this isn't a redundant topic.

    Anyways, I'm really interested in getting a 3-yr MLA. I'm really interested in ecology (bio was my undergrad major), and have no formal art training. Unexpectedly, I'm looking for a program with an ecology focus rather than a purely artistic one. Does anyone have suggestions about what programs to look into?

    Right now I'm loving Michigan, but I'm worried it's really competitive and i won't get in (I've had NO experience in the field...). Still my dream school so far, though. Does anyone know if it's super competitive?

    Sorry for the multitude of somewhat vague questions. There just aren't many resources out there for future MLA students!

    Thanks!!

    A couple of LA's in my office recommend Michigan for ecology and/or restoration.

    I would recommend SUNY ESF at Syracuse myself as an alumnus but also because of their connections with environmental sciences and management:

    Thanks for the replies so far!

    And whoops, my original post should read "Unsurprisingly," NOT "unexpectedly."
