I have completed my B.SC (Physics) from Xaviers College. However, I like Landscaping and have been working as a free-lance Landscape designer since the last 3 years. My husband has been offered a job in Toronto, Canada. I am interested in studying Landscape design when I join him there. Can you please recommend suitable programs near Torotno?

The University of Toronto offers a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) degree. The MLA is a three-year professional program intended for individuals who have completed a bachelor’s degree (in any discipline—BA, BSc, BFA, BCom) with high academic standing, and demonstrated leadership potential in the field. Preference is given to individuals who have completed a balanced undergraduate education that includes study in the arts, sciences, and humanities. The following specific courses at the undergraduate level are highly recommended: biology/ecology, geography, English, and history. Preparation in the visual arts, such as drawing, sculpture, graphics, photography, film, or new media, as well as in computing and advanced writing is recommended.

I recently graduated with a BA Political Science degree earlier this year. But my true passion in life is photography.  I am interested in studying Photography at the New York Film Academy. Can you please guide me through their Portfolio requirements?
