Program Description

MA Landscape Architecture

University of Greenwich

This postgraduate programme is designed for individuals interested in becoming professional Landscape Architects. Graduates from the programme, which is recognised and accredited by the Landscape Institute, have joined some of London's leading landscape practices, have founded award-winning international design studios and have led strategic urban design projects like the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The core component of the MA Landscape Architecture programme is the design studio where students engage with landscape, urbanism, agriculture and infrastructure projects in the UK and abroad. With a team of academics and practitioners the students develop their design projects through tutorials and design reviews. They are supported to develop innovative and distinct approaches to landscape architecture, reflected in their final design project and dissertation thesis. Teaching is informed by comprehensive technical and theoretical seminars and guest lectures from international artists, designers and academics. Details of international events, open lectures and student events can be found on:
