About

The Landscape and Wellbeing offered by The University of Edinburgh takes an innovative, interdisciplinary approach to the study of salutogenic landscapes and the importance of the environment for human health and wellbeing.

Overview

The Landscape and Wellbeing offered by The University of Edinburgh provides a unique opportunity for academics and practitioners working in landscape architecture, planning, design, geography, public health, psychology, epidemiology, horticulture and ecology to understand the evidence base and to operationalise the planning and design of salutogenic landscape.

The programme offers access to the latest research in the field, drawing on the most advanced theoretical and methodological approaches to understanding the subject.

You will be encouraged to translate research into practice, develop a better understanding of the evidence base to inform your work and guide more effective environmental interventions and their evaluation.

Career opportunities

This degree provides preparation for work in sectors including public health, urban development, green infrastructure planning, human geography, horticulture and therapeutic environments, in addition to deepening engagement with landscape and wellbeing for established practitioners in architecture, landscape architecture and health. It is also an excellent preparation for students wishing to undertake doctoral-level research.

Programme Structure

  • The programme combines lectures, seminars and project work with student-led oral and graphic presentations, essays and a supervised dissertation.
  • Guest lecturers within OPENspace’s network of professional and expert contacts further augment the programme.
  • It is structured around four compulsory courses and three optional courses, drawn from architecture, landscape architecture, and from other Schools within the University of Edinburgh.
