Landscape Architecture is a discipline that focuses on intervention in the landscape through the activities of planning, design, and management. It also focuses on the science that underpins these activities and the implementation of proposals. It is united around the concept of landscape, which is defined in various ways but is generally understood to mean outdoor spaces, environments and places and relationships between people and these spaces, environments, and places, both in terms of activities and perceptions.
Landscape Architecture is concerned with landscapes of all types, both urban and rural, and at all scales from the smallest open space to the region.
The curriculum builds on the level of achievement expected at bachelor level with in-depth studies of a range of more specialized subjects covering both practical and theoretical fields, including ones which have special aspects suitable for study in Estonia.
Chair professor of our landscape architecture study programs is Simon Bell. The students become professional landscape architects recognized both in Estonia and internationally.
The programme equips students with appropriate knowledge and understanding in the following areas:
The programme also equips students with the advanced skills that are essential to prepare for study and critical and reflective practice in landscape architecture. Skills include:
Graduates of the programme will be able to work in professional practice in private design offices, in local government or government agencies throughout Europe and beyond where their skills are needed. They may also use the master degree as a basis for entering a doctoral programme.
