The ongoing urbanisation poses major challenges for the development of urban and rural landscapes. Within landscape achitecture we work with these, our living spaces, and how they are planned, designed and managed for future generations.
The Master’s programme is located at SLU’s campus in Uppsala, one of Sweden’s oldest university cities and close to Sweden’s capital, Stockholm. It is primarily for those who are interested in sustainable urban-rural perspectives, who are problem solving-oriented and who want to deepen their knowledge of and skills in the field of landscape architecture’s more large-scale developments. Theoretical and practical components prepare you and equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to develop creative and current theoretical knowledge and positions. Real-life project assignments are obtained mainly from Sweden and the region, but contents of theory and method are international and current in character. Study trips in Europe occur and courses are taught in English.
The programme leads to a Master’s degree in landscape architecture and makes use of courses, resources and development opportunities available on the SLU campus. First and foremost, you are studying with students on the Landscape Architect professional programme offered by the Department of Urban and Rural Development. There is also the possibility to study courses at SLU’s campus Alnarp in southern Sweden, including the Master’s programme in Landscape Architecure. The two programmes are strategically located in two of Sweden’s most vital and expansive regions, and together they represent Europe’s largest combined concentration of educational competence in landscape architecture.
