Course Summary

The Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA), accredited by the Landscape Institute, is for graduates who wish to take the next step towards becoming a professional landscape architect. Throughout the course, you'll develop your skills and knowledge of design, history, theory, professional practice, technology, ecology, sustainability, horticulture, and digital representation. You'll have the opportunity to study specific modules covering landscape design, landscape urbanism and theory, and plant technology. The course is taught in a new building equipped with design studios, digital workshops and green roofs. The Master of Landscape Architecture establishes the social, ecological and design processes that are fundamental to the field but encourages innovation and creativity as well. The course will appeal to anyone who wishes to pursue a professional career in the profession of Landscape Architecture, including graduates who wish to make a career change towards this area.

Landscape Architecture has been taught at University of Greenwich since 1965, so many graduates find employment through the expansive alumni network in London, across the UK and overseas. Some Landscape Architecture graduates work in architecture, landscape architecture or urban design practices. Other graduates have joined government design and planning offices to develop urban strategies and policy. Some graduates have also followed further studies through doctorate research.


Landscape architecture is an art of milieu involving shifting, evolving contexts that are ecological, social, cultural, political, economic, and aesthetic. Our lived landscapes are buildings that reflect our immediate world views and our aspirations as well as the world views and aspirations of the dominant classes. To be effective landscape architects we must be aware of all of these contexts through which we navigate in our work. This course will explore a great variety of ways of thinking about landscape to provide a foundation for further research and for the critical modes of operation necessary for an exemplary career in landscape architecture.
