About Landscape architecture

Landscape Architecture is a unique discipline that acts as a bridge between the arts and sciences, design and the environment, and engages in core ecological, cultural and social issues in both urban and rural societies.

At Melbourne, you'll be challenged to generate ecologically responsive and appropriate designs that consider land planning and transformation issues, sustainable design principles and natural processes.

Classes incorporate studio sessions, site visits and theoretical studies of the history and practice of landscape architecture. You will learn about community programs, garden and landscape heritage, and the sustainability of our natural resources.
