Course content

This creative and reflective Master's degree considers interventions in the landscape through imaginative design, strategic thinking and technical knowledge. Landscape architects shape the future of cities and rural environments alike.

In REF 2014 46% of The Bartlett’s research was rated 4* i.e. “world-leading”, with a further 35% recognised as 3* i.e. “internationally excellent”.* The Bartlett submitted the largest quantity of 4* world-leading research outputs (156 items) of any university submitting to the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning sub-panel. On “Research Environment”, which grades the “vitality” and “sustainability” of the research environment, The Bartlett received the highest score for submission to the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning sub-panel.

In the design studio, students 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. 

Students work with a team of landscape architects, researchers and built environment professionals to inform your creative design practices. The Bartlett School of Architecture is renowned for preparing students for successful careers.

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 scenarios, be they speculative, theoretical or practical.
