Course summary

The MSc Advanced Landscape and Urbanism allows you to develop inventive approaches to the design of cities, landscape and territories - enhancing your academic and professional skills. Designed for students of architecture, landscape architecture, engineering and related fields, this master's in landscape and urbanism addresses the growing influence of landscape on urban, social and ecological processes. You'll learn about the challenges facing contemporary cities, such as urban growth, climate change, and social inequality, encouraging you to consider future landscapes and cities with these issues in mind.
