Course Summary

This creative and reflective two-year Master's degree empowers students without a landscape architecture undergraduate degree to pursue a career as a landscape architect. Landscape architects shape the future of cities and rural environments alike. You will gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the discipline of landscape architecture and the related profession, informed by current practice, scholarship and research. With design-led teaching and learning, you will learn how to design, using a range of techniques and research methods, equipping you to progress towards a career as a landscape architect.

In the design studio, you will develop individual projects, documented in design portfolios, to increasing levels of complexity and ambition as the programme progresses, supported by tutorials, seminars, crits and interim reviews. This programme empowers students with the contextual knowledge of the history and theory of landscape architecture, alongside the ability to apply research to design and professional scenerios, be they speculative, theoretical or practical. Accreditation: We will be seeking Landscape Institute accreditation for this programme to give graduates the relevant qualification on their route to Chartered Member of the Landscape Institute status.
