Program description

University of Pretoria Master Programs

Landscape Architecture, PhD

Landscapes are the represented expressions of the dynamic interaction between the technological and cultural activities of human societies with the physical environment. Landscape architecture is a profession and academic discipline concerned with the design of rural and urban outside places on various scales informed by this interaction. It considers change over time and mediates art and science; artefact and nature; city and region; and private and public interests. Landscape architects therefore synthesise knowledge from the humanities and the sciences to sustainably design meaningful and beautiful places that are grounded in material and immaterial culture, and ecology of their local contexts. The programme in landscape architecture is the only undergraduate course of its kind offered in South Africa. Locally there is a great demand for practitioners in both the public and private sector.

Candidates who have obtained a master?s degree in Landscape Architecture or the UP MSc (Applied Science) are admitted to doctoral studies.
