Course Information

Landscape architecture is a discipline that connects people across disciplines, cultures and communities united in the common goal of creating places that have a positive impact on society, culture and the environment.

Nowadays there has been more than ever, a recognition that landscapes must be conceptualised, designed and managed in ways that address contemporary challenges facing communities and the global environment, including environmental sustainability and human resilience and wellbeing.

The programme is designed in a way to blend theory and practice allowing exploring a range of topics conderning interfaces between people, landscapes, cities and nature. This programme allows understanding the problems and opportunities facing urban and rural landscapes, and covering issues that relate to both individual placemaking and wider infrastructure.

Note: The MA in Landscape Architecture Studies is not designed to provide a complete training for becoming a UK Chartered Landscape Architect and is not recognised professionally by the UK Landscape Institute. However, the course provides a basis for further education, career development, and work in a variety of areas, as well as opportunity for specialised study.
