The LI has announced recognition of a new masters degree at the University of Greenwich
The MSc Landscape Planning and Assessment provides opportunities for students to develop a particular focus on environmental assessment and can be taken by students as an alternative exit award to the already accredited MA in Landscape Architecture.
“The recognition of the programme means that students who want to join the LI and go on to qualify in the profession have a wide range of choices at Greenwich”, said Sue Beard, Director of Education and Membership.
“Undergraduate entrants can choose to undertake either a BA Garden Design or BA Landscape Architecture; to complete their initial professional training they can then take either the MA or the MSc, depending on their main interests. There are also parallel graduate entry routes for people looking to join landscape from other disciplines – students can progress to the MSc or MA after they have undertaken Greenwich’s conversion course,” she said.
“We are very pleased to have this award brought into the LI’s accreditation framework,” added programme leader Dr Benz Kotzen. “Greenwich’s programmes integrate analytical and creative approaches. Our aim is to develop students abilities in planning and design projects, for urban and rural areas, which are beautiful, socially useful and sustainable.”
