Course content

This course has both an accredited and non-accredited route. The accredited route is accredited by Landscape Institute and the International Federation of Landscape Architects.

This is a one-year course that teaches students about effective management of both natural and designed landscapes. It embraces environmental, social, cultural and economic factors to optimise the management of many of our most iconic landscapes. You’ll learn how to revitalise degraded, damaged or underused landscapes, while the Special Project and Dissertation allow you to explore topics of personal interest.

The programme is designed to allow landscape architects to develop a specialism within management, or to introduce landscape management to other professionals within the land-based, geographical or ecology sectors. It can be taken through either a Landscape Institute-accredited or non-accredited route.

Teaching takes place through lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, critical feedback sessions, site visits and practicals.

Assessment is by coursework assignments, dissertation, oral presentation and examination.
