The Master of Landscape Architecture/Master of Urban Planning is a double degree, that will allow students to complete two professional graduate programs in a reduced timeframe.
Landscape architecture is a unique discipline that acts as a bridge between the arts and sciences, design and environment. Landscape architecture engages with core ecological, cultural and social issues in both urban and rural societies.
The Master of Landscape Architecture at the University of Melbourne is underpinned by a strong grounding in design, ecology and urbanism. These strengths are paralleled by a comprehensive history and theory stream encompassing contemporary landscape architecture, architecture and urban design theory, cross cultural issues, including indigenous perspectives for sustainable societies.
The Master of Landscape Architecture allows students with an undergraduate degree in any discipline to enrol in the Master of Landscape Architecture, which is a distinctive feature of this program at the University of Melbourne.
The first year of study is carefully structured to allow students from diverse backgrounds to develop the required knowledge and foundations in design, history and physical systems before joining second year entry point students (with a cognate background).
The Master of Landscape Architecture is also available to students who have an undergraduate background in landscape architecture, including graduates with a Bachelor of Environments from the University of Melbourne with a major in Landscape Architecture, most often with 100 points of advanced standing.
The Master of Urban Planning is an accredited professional degree that focuses on Australian and international policy and planning pertaining to human settlements. Planners promote the establishment of economically viable, socially just, environmentally sustainable, safe and healthy human settlements.
As planners, we believe that this is a critical pursuit and perhaps it is never more timely than now as we adapt to global changes that impact our cities. These changes include climate change; deepening inequality that has often been associated with diminished local democracy and the rise of community advocacy; growing concerns for community health and safety; and the emergence of global city-regions that require innovations in governance and planning.
