Landscape ArchitectureWhat will landscapes look like in the future? What are thedistinctive qualities of today’s living spaces, and what demandswill their users make on their surroundings in the future?Landscape architects deal with complex issues. The master’sdegree course in landscape architecture teaches aesthetic andsocial scientific approaches together with scientific principlesand advanced history of nature, landscape and gardens.Offered by the Faculty of Architecture and Landscape Sciences,the course enables students to concern themselves intensivelywith architecture and town-planning.Landscape architects work across the disciplines. They takecultural developments and the socioeconomic planningframework (finance, public expenditure and demography)into consideration. The focus lies on the scientific and artisticprocessing of design tasks – a combination with many opportunitiesto specialise.Profile of Degree CoursesThe master’s programme is an academic university degreecourse in landscape architecture and open space development,based on design and engineering principles and drawing onaspects of practical relevance. Great value is attached to atechnical and constructive implementation of student’s ownideas. Core research areas are: the shaping of the landscapethrough its infrastructure, e.g. waterways or traffic systems,the history of landscape architecture, which has a long traditionat Leibniz Universität Hannover, and the interface betweenlandscape architecture and current discourse in art.The master’s programme in landscape architecture centresaround intensively supervised projects carried out in smallgroups, which help students to reflect on their own creativeactivity as well as on developments in contemporary society.In this way self management, but also the ability to work in ateam and presentation techniques are intensively trained.Course ContentThe master’s programme in landscape architecture builds onthe methods and knowledge acquired in the bachelor’s degreein landscape architecture and environmental planning. Thewide freedom of choice in the project modules and the compulsorysubject option modules allows students to pursue theirown areas of interest, while landscape architecture remains asthe essential element of the programme.Field trips enable students to gain insights into current issuesand possible solutions on the spot, both at home and abroad,and to discuss with experts. The master’s thesis is written inthe fourth semester. Here a topic chosen by the student orsuggested to them is developed with a view to research aspectsand professional life. The master’s thesis should take the formof scientifically sound, written and/or design documentation(plans, models, video documentation etc.).Recommended SkillsStudents need to enjoy analysing people, nature and technology.A professional environmental planner possesses bothscientific and social-scientific skills, as well as the ability to beable to communicate these to others.Language SkillsMost courses are held in the German language.Practical TrainingAn admission requirement for the master’s programme is afour-month period of work experience. An internship of thisrequired minimum period which has been carried out duringthe undergraduate degree course will be recognised. Furtherwork experience is not included in the master’s curriculum.Study AbroadStudents can choose a project topic abroad and work on itthere, or spend a semester studying at a partner university, forexample as part of the EU Erasmus programme.Fields of Professional Activityand EmploymentCurriculum Structure1.
