What will I learn?

Architecture and landscape architecture work in concert to create functional, innovative and beautiful buildings and places.

This combined degree examines the vital relationship between the two areas of study and offers a holistic perspective on the profession today. How can we effect environmental change through design? How can we stay responsive to shifting needs and landscapes?

explore and extend your capacity for creativity

apply and advance your learning through internship electives
undertake individual research-led design projects and immersive overseas studios
engage with the many industry professionals who teach and tutor in classes as well as extra-curricular activities.

Where could it take you?

You’ll graduate as an accredited architecture and landscape professional, well prepared to pursue architectural, landscaping or managerial roles.

You might become a green architect, focused on eco-design and native gardens. Perhaps you’ll be a project manager for emerging community hubs, social spaces, play areas and parks.
