Introduction

The double degree in Design/Landscape architecture enables students to combine a unique, multidisciplinary approach to the study of design disciplines with a strong professional and research foundation in the theory and practice of landscape architecture. Students will engage with the values, knowledge and skills central to the design and management of sustainable built environments and open space systems. Students will have the advantage of learning in and contributing to Australia's National Capital, Canberra ? an internationally recognized exemplar of a designed landscape city.

In the first three years of this distinctive double degree, students begin their landscape studies while also exploring the breadth of design disciplines. They share much of their first year studies with the disciplines of Architecture, Industrial Design and Interior Architecture. In the second and third years, they build on this multidisciplinary approach while intensifying their focus on the theory and practice of landscape architecture. The fourth year, Bachelor of Landscape provides an integrated, research enriched specialised year in which students extend their skills and knowledge in research-led, project oriented landscape studios.

Graduates will be highly sought after in today?s multidisciplinary landscape related design workplaces.
