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 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.

You will 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 and has been ranked as the top architecture school by the Architects' Journal AJ100 for fourteen consecutive years and as the top place to study architecture in Europe by the QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2017.

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.
