Course content

Delivered by an expert academic team, including members of OPENspace, the international research centre for inclusive access to outdoor environments, this programme takes an innovative, interdisciplinary approach to the study of salutogenic landscapes and the importance of the environment for human health and wellbeing.

In providing a unique opportunity for academics and practitioners working in landscape architecture, planning, design, geography, public health, psychology, epidemiology, horticulture and ecology to understand the evidence base and to operationalise the planning and design of salutogenic landscapes, the programme offers the most advanced theoretical and methodological access to the latest research in the field.

You will be encouraged to translate research into practice, develop a better understanding of the evidence base to inform your work and guide more effective environmental interventions.
