Course Overview:

This course has had no new intake since 2007.

Students who commenced the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture prior to 2008 should visit : for detailed course information or contact a Student Advisor at the Environments and Design Student Centre.


The course aims to:

  • offer professional studies in landscape architecture leading to accreditation with the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects and thereby with some professional accrediting bodies internationally;

  • provide students with an understanding of the systems operating both in natural environments and in those environments that, as landscapes, manifest human intervention and culture;

  • equip graduates with basic skills which will be necessary to enable them, as practising professionals, to intervene positively in the process of change to those landscapes through planning, design and management;

  • teach landscape architecture as an intellectual and professional endeavour, which embodies, wherever it is practised, a commitment to the continuing health and well-being of the environment and of human life.
