Department of Landscape/Department of Town and Regional Planning, Faculty of Social Sciences
The Department of Landscape at Sheffield is the largest independent landscape school in the UK. Our degrees are respected by the landscape profession and our graduates are in demand from employers.
About the course
1 year full time
This course enables you to specialise in a particular topic of interest within the field of landscape design and landscape science through researching and writing a dissertation. As well as gaining a masters-level degree in landscape studies, you'll also graduate with a research proposal that can then form the basis of a PhD.
The course is taught jointly with the Department of Town and Regional Planning, and for many modules you'll be working alongside students on the MA in Planning Research and Theory.
Our graduates are creative, disciplined individuals who make a difference wherever they go. Recent graduates are now employed as landscape architects in the UK and internationally.
In the UK you can find work that focuses on your particular specialism in design, planning or management. This could be in private practice, for public authorities (councils and national parks), or for wildlife and development trusts. You could work in an environment-related occupation, such as conservation or forestry.
Our graduates also work in public administration and policy making, for organisations such as Natural England or DEFRA.
A number of compulsory core modules that provide background in research techniques and approaches, and a range of optional modules that are focused on specialist areas within landscape and planning studies.
