NMBU Call for applications for Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture for Global Sustainability
Application deadline for Nordic, EU/EEA and Swiss citizens: April 15th
Other international applicants: December 1st
Master of Science (2 years). The course is offered every year, starting in the autumn semester (august). Full-time study.
The study program Landscape Architecture for Global Sustainability is recognised by the IFLA Europe - the European Region of the International Federation of Landscape Architects.
The program based in a Life Science University is research-, question- and project-driven. The core of the curriculum is project work developed in a sequence of three studios culminating in a thesis.
The program attracts students from different parts of the world. Group work provides opportunities for exchange of intercultural experience and knowledge. Courses will cover ethical concerns, a suite of methods as well as knowledge about working internationally and experiencing cultural differences.
We encourage students to explore and develop contemporary ways to work, which advance landscape architecture as a productive, generalist profession between science and artistic methods. These methods involve an iterative design process, with regular advising, presentations, and feedback.
The curriculum has a research focus and spans across design, landscape ecology, as well as theory and history. The program builds up on prior degrees (BA) of landscape architecture and related studies to an advanced level of landscape architecture in context of globalized world.
The program consists of an introductory course, a theory course, and a series of three studio courses with a focus on design-research driven projects. In addition, are electives across the Life Science University and the master thesis.
