MA PG Diploma Landscape Management
Duration: 1 year full-time; 2-3 years part-time
Accreditation: This course has both an accredited and non-accredited route. The accredited route is accredited by Landscape Institute and the International Federation of Landscape Architects
This is a one-year course that teaches students about effective management of both natural and designed landscapes. It embraces environmental, social, cultural and economic factors to optimise the management of many of our most iconic landscapes. You’ll learn how to revitalise degraded, damaged or underused landscapes, while the Special Project and Dissertation allow you to explore topics of personal interest.
The programme is designed to allow Landscape Architects to develop a specialism within Management, or to introduce Landscape Management to other professionals within the land-based, geographical or ecology sectors.
Students without previous employment within these sectors can opt for a non-accredited route, whereas those with previous relevant experience can undertake the accredited route. Students on the non-accredited route are provided with a general introduction to Landscape Architecture, whereas students on the accredited route take a more specialised module dedicated to UK professional practice, law and contracts.
The teaching and learning is studio based, with students working on projects in groups and individually, with a high level of support and guidance from tutors. The studio projects are supported by workshops, lectures, seminars, and site visits.
Students on the accredited route will take:
