Course content

Join the UK’s only independent landscape architecture department and develop advanced skills for practice outside of the UK, with our one-year, intensive masters in landscape studies.

Course description

This one-year course is research-led, introducing advanced knowledge in landscape architecture.

You’ll explore different aspects of the discipline, learn advanced academic and professional skills and write a dissertation on a landscape topic that matters to you. Participation in the end-of-year exhibition gives you the chance to present your work to prospective employers.

This course focuses on advanced academic knowledge related to landscape issues, aimed at applicants who already have a background in landscape architecture. If you do not have a background in lLandscape and wish to pursue a career in the professional landscape architecture field, we advise you to apply for the two-year accredited MA Landscape Architecture course.
