About

The Master of Landscape Architecture programme, offered by The University of Hong Kong, provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary education in landscape architecture that is designed to equip students with core knowledge and technical competencies in the arts and sciences of landscape architecture.

Overview

The curriculum comprises design studios, core courses and electives covering both practical and theoretical studies in: landscape planning and design; ecology; horticulture; planting design; construction technology; professional practice; and techniques in visual communication and digital technology.
