UiT The Arctic University of Norway has launched a new Master programme in landscape architecture, 2 years, 120 ECTS now open for applicants!
The basis for the master’s in landscape architecture is in the local, establishing a global laboratory which gives special emphasis to arctic/subarctic conditions, including the natural and man-made transformations which affect both society and the ecosystem in the Arctic/subarctic.
The aim of the study programme is to conduct research into, and produce new knowledge about, how we can protect, shape, and further develop particularly vulnerable landscapes within communities in state of flux. The programme focuses on urban, landscape and territorial practices. This differentiation makes it possible to add different perspectives to the spectrum of human activities which impact and form landscapes in the arctic/subarctic region. These three perspectives overlap with each other and are thematised in the studio courses.
Applicants who wish to develop knowledge and skills within the field of landscape architecture to contribute to relevant and innovative societal development, with particular emphasis on dynamic transformation processes in vulnerable landscapes and communities in the Arctic/subarctic.
The programme is best suited to applicants with an interest in design, and artistic and scientific innovation work, in addition to an understanding and interest in natural, cultural, and social conditions. To participate in the programme students must have basic skills in the use of digital tools, such as CAD, GIS, and Adobe Illustrator.
The programme is a full-time course over two years as specified in the programme structure.
