The Master of Landscape Architecture combined with the Master of Urban Design creates professionals who will have the knowledge and skills to help improve our built and natural environments through innovative design, and who understand the city as a spatio-temporally complex system.

The program aims to provide you with:

  • unique skills which bridge the arts and sciences, design and the environment;
  • the ability to engage in core ecological, cultural and social issues in both urban and rural societies;
  • foundation knowledge for the design of interconnected buildings and private and public spaces for our towns within social, environmental, aesthetic and economic contexts.

At the Melbourne School of Design, our curriculum is underpinned by a strong grounding in design, ecology and urbanism.  These strengths are paralleled by a comprehensive history and theory stream encompassing contemporary landscape architecture, architecture and urban design theory, and cross-cultural issues, including indigenous perspective for sustainable societies.

By combining the Master of Landscape Architecture and Master of Urban Design as a double degree, our students complete two professionally accredited graduate programs in a reduced timeframe. This gives them a true competitive advantage and broader career options.  Dual accreditation also offers a distinctive signal to employers and industry and enhances our existing graduate reputation for strong leadership and strategic thinking skills, embedded in our expertise in providing a world-class built environment education influencing Melbourne and cities globally for over 150 years.
