University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00099F

The Master of Landscape Architecture provides students with the opportunity to collaborate alongside celebrated practitioners from award-winning international design studios and leading experts in the area of urban design. Students engage in a variety of projects that are based upon the big questions that face global contemporary cities and landscapes: urban densification, climate change, declining resource supply (land, food and water) and the loss of biological diversity through ecological fragmentation and habitat destruction. Using the most relevant and up-to-date methodologies and technologies, students participate in practice-based studios to develop their complex problem-solving skills in order to address the critical role of landscape in the cities of the future. By building advanced specialist knowledge, UTS students graduate with a range of advocacy, political and professional agency, project management and financial skills in order to tackle contemporary issues in local and global contexts. The Master of Landscape Architecture offers the opportunity for students to actively and critically consider the agency of landscape in the future city and become active in the discourse of what future cities may become through an integrated design-focused approach. Graduates from the Master of Landscape Architecture are well-equipped to tackle contemporary issues in local and/or global contexts through an expanded understanding of the most relevant and up-to-date methodologies, tools and technologies.


Students must complete 96 credit points made up of 72 credit points of core subjects and 24 credit points of electives.
