Landscape Architecture Major

Bachelor of Design

Landscape Architecture utilises design and ecology to plan our external environments. It plays an important role in our experience of living, from neighbourhoods, to city squares, urban forests, parks, streets, gardens, and green infrastructure.

The Landscape Architecture major Handbook entry stipulates the complete requirements for the Landscape Architecture major.

Always use the University Handbook as your primary course planning tool.
