A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

Public, commercial and large-scale residential outdoor space planning falls under the purview of landscape architecture specialists. Knowledge and skills in landscape design, site management, and infrastructure planning are pulled together to create green spaces in urban, suburban and some rural environments.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
