The Landscape Architecture program from The University of Western Australia provides emphasis on ecological, cultural and social design considerations at global, regional and local levels. 

The Master of Landscape Architecture is offered in two modes: Coursework; or Coursework and Dissertation. In addition to core studies, in the Coursework mode students are offered the choice of enrolling in either a series of option units covering a range of topics or a specialisation in a related area of expertise (such as Environmental Planning or Urban Design).
