Master of Landscape Architecture

The University of Adelaide

The landscape architecture program focuses on appreciation of the significance of design, an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the discipline and the vital importance of a close relationship with the landscape architecture profession. Additionally, the interdisciplinary nature of landscape architecture practice is emphasised through close contact and shared courses with architecture and urban design students. Students are encouraged throughout their time here to develop a position in relation to current disciplinary and socio-political concerns rather than following trends or dogma. We require that they consider expanded possibilities rather than secure definitions of what constitutes landscape architecture as an effective and affective contemporary practice.
