The Conway School of Landscape Design is the only institution of its kind in North America. It is located in western Massachusetts.
Conway's accredited Master of Arts in Landscape Design (MALD) degree program offers an integrated curriculum where classes complement design practice based on an apprenticeship model.

Each year through our accredited 10-month curriculum eighteen to nineteen graduate students from diverse backgrounds are immersed in a range of applied landscape studies that cross scales from site to region. Conway's nearly 600 graduates make significant contributions to the health of the planet and its citizens through their work in regenerative design, habitat restoration, conservation planning, land trusts, permaculture, bioengineering, urban agriculture, and much more.
