Course info

Summary

This MA Landscape Architecture enables applicants who have an accredited degree in Landscape Architecture, or completed a MA LA conversion year an opportunity to progress their studies and take the next step towards being a Chartered Landscape Architect.

What's covered in the course?

The course is structured so that two studios run in parallel. The first studio design series is explored as a process led narrative that develops theory and builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in your degree. The format of studio learning is continued with an increased emphasis on research and design experimentation. These include research-led design projects relating to public health and well-being, habitat creation and biodiversity, and climate change resilience, settlement design, food security and large infrastructure schemes like High Speed 2 (HS2) and systems scale interventions. The ethos of the course is that landscape is a sequence of interrelated designed environments that provides the scope for a design laboratory connected by land, ecology, water, climate and infrastructure, linked to a cultural context that extends from parish to global political and economic systems.

You will build on your existing skills and develop creative, artistic, technical and intellectual abilities through a range of design projects that explore contemporary issues and problems. The learning experience reflects the diversity of projects which grow in scale and complexity whilst gaining an understanding of the design process and attainment of professional level communication skills.

Enhancing your employability skills

The skillsets delivered by the course leave you are in a strong position when applying for jobs.

This is particularly supported through the Praxis module, designed to ensure you are confident at an interview. To support this further, we also have workshops on Auto-CAD, Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, helping to develop very strong portfolios that demonstrate the full range of visual communications skills.
