Landscape Architecture is a discipline that focuses on intervention in the landscape through the activities of planning, design, and management. It also focuses on the science that underpins these activities and the implementation of proposals. It is united around the concept of landscape, which is defined in various ways but is generally understood to mean outdoor spaces, environments, and places and relationships between people and these spaces, environments, and places, both in terms of activities and perceptions.

Landscape Architecture is concerned with landscapes of all types, both urban and rural, and at all scales from the smallest open space to the region.

The curriculum builds on the level of achievement expected at the bachelor level with in-depth studies of a range of more specialized subjects covering both practical and theoretical fields, including ones that have special aspects suitable for study in Estonia.

Teaching methods

The programme offers different ways of study: not only full time in-person attendance but also a distant learning version where students attend in person occasionally and continue work in a hybrid mode in between those periods.

In the program, we use a mix of individual study and group project work. Teaching modes range from formal lectures and seminars or field trips to tuition on studio-based design projects, opportunities for research range from library-based research to fieldwork.

Assessment methods include writing examination papers, essays, and reports, but also hand-drawn or digital graphic-based plans and images. We consider open, public presentation and criticism of design projects important. We discuss realistic planning, design, or management problems, which form the basis of the project work. A relatively large proportion of the curriculum is dedicated to design studios, field visits, and research.
