Landscape architecture is a discipline that works across a range of creative ideas, living systems, physical materials, and future possibilities. It is about envisioning, investigating, and proposing better ways of living in a complex and changing world.
The Master of Landscape Architecture course is accredited by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects. The course is recognised as a world-class facility in fostering design knowledge, critical thinking, and design advocacy through innovative teaching and research.
RMIT's Master of Landscape Architecture will equip you to become a leader and innovator in landscape architectural practice.Design Research is at its core
Design research projects undertaken within this course sit at a contemporary and international level. Design research enables you to engage profoundly with the discipline. You will investigate issues and topics that are relevant to contemporary issues in urban and natural contexts increasingly affected by climate change, natural disasters and misappropriation of land.Study in RMIT's unique design studios
You'll learn through design studios, which operate as laboratories conducive to experimentation, investigation, and the exploration of design as an agent that responds to issues in the built environment. Studios are led by distinguished local and international academic practitioners drawing from a diverse field of knowledge and experience.
This course will prepare you for the professional practice of landscape architecture, working independently or as part of a large team. From urban design projects to working with large open spaces, the parameters of projects are broad.
As a landscape architect, you will find career opportunities in the design offices of landscape architects, architects, planners, urban designers and engineers throughout Australia, and government organisations at federal, state and municipal levels.
Graduates may also become involved in smaller projects such as private gardens, historic estates and productive landscapes.
