Course summary

Landscape architecture is a creative discipline that focuses on intervention in the landscape through imaginative design, strategic thinking and scientific precision.It analyses, represents, reclaims, reinvents and constructs landscapes as places with meaning. It is positioned at the interface between art and design, and the physical, natural and social sciences.**Three strands of learning**Our programme is structured in three interconnected strands: * design * theory * techniquesYou will explore landscape and environmental topics with contemporary relevance. These will look at both urban and rural contexts. You will learn skills that prepare you to face some of the most meaningful challenges currently happening in our cities and wider territories, including:* resilience to climate change and loss of biodiversity * regeneration of polluted and contaminated areas * the need for increased social inclusion * responding to shifts in urbanisation**Developing your practice** Our programme is committed to educating designers whose study and practice is:* creative * inventive * intelligent * rigorous * ethical Our staff are also designers, makers and theorists who engage with both local and global landscapes in their ongoing research practice. **Why Edinburgh?**We have a unique relationship with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, where you will learn about plants and horticulture from world-leading researchers and scientists.
