Overview

THE COURSE STRUCTURE BELOW ONLY APPLIES TO RE-ENROLLING STUDENTS WHO COMMENCED THEIR STUDIES PRIOR TO 2016

Landscape Architecture is a design profession which provides a unique bridge between design and the environmental sciences. This major explores the practice, theory, history, and long-standing ecological sensibilities of the discipline. Landscape Architecture ranges across all scales of design encompassing large-scale public projects such as the Olympic Parks in Sydney and Beijing, to suburban development, to smaller urban spaces and gardens.

Landscape Architecture offers creative opportunities to engage in core ecological, cultural and social issues faced today. Students of Landscape Architecture are attracted to its creativity and diversity, its challenges and demands.

From 2016 double majors are available for certain majors within the Bachelor of Environments. Further information on double majors can be found here: http://edsc.unimelb.edu.au/double-majors.

A major in Landscape Architecture prepares students either for employment or the two-year Master of Landscape Architecture program to become an accredited landscape architect.

Intended learning outcomes
