Course Objectives

The degree programme aims to train professional figures who are familiar with and understand the physico-spatial and organisational characteristics of environmental contexts, in terms of their natural and anthropic components, their transformation over time and the social, economic and regional context to which they belong, and who are capable of surveying these contexts through an analysis of their geo-morphologic, historic, cultural and urban fabric characteristics.

Graduates develop specific competences in analysis, evaluation, interpretation, representation and design procedures, in the management of urban and non-urban areas of primarily cultural value, and the management of related technical, administrative and production procedures.

Career and Employment

Landscape Architecture encompasses multiple fields of practical application, in relation to:

  • the design of parks and public and private gardens, hanging gardens, botanical gardens, cemeteries, and golf courses
  • studies for the revitalisation of parks, gardens and historic landscapes
  • landscape evaluation and planning analyses
  • environmental impact studies
  • projects for the recovery and revitalisation of quarries and mines, derelict areas, integration of railway, motorway and service infrastructure networks.

The master degree programme in Green Area and Landscape Planning enables students to enter the State Examination, so as to register under Section A of the Council of Professional Agronomists and Foresters, and the Council of Architects, Planners, Landscape Architects and Curators.
