Course summary

This MSc is the first of its kind in the UK to address a 21st century need to better understand relationships between the landscape and human wellbeing in order to plan and design salutogenic landscapes. The programme draws on a wide range of expertise from across the University. In particular, you will benefit from the expertise of OPENspace, internationally recognised as a research centre focused on inclusive access to outdoor environments and the benefits for health and quality of life. You will also have the opportunity to make connections in theory and practice within and across disciplines throughout the arts, humanities and social sciences, and across wider university expertise in science and medicine. In this programme, you will develop an understanding of aspects of the outdoor environment that support and enhance wellbeing. You will also learn how to make a critical evaluation of existing places and future developments. Ultimately, you will be equipped to research and make recommendations for the planning and design of landscapes which support and enhance human health and wellbeing, and to evaluate their effectiveness.
