Do you believe that good design can make cities great places to live? Landscape architecture could be the right career for you. You will learn how to create the green and public spaces that make global cities truly great.
Make a difference to our global cities
Study at the intersection of sustainability, ecology, environment and design. With the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, you'll discover how landscapes and public spaces unify our complex urban environments, balancing sustainability concerns with the needs of contemporary society and culture.
You’ll also have the chance to work across disciplines — architecture, art, planning, science and engineering – to respond to some of the critical challenges of our time, from climate change and urban densification to the loss of biodiversity.
Great career prospects
The prospects are good for landscape architects. Senior landscape architects were ranked number 3 on Indeed.com’s list of most in-demand jobs of 2018 , earning an average salary of over $95,000 a year.
Why study at UTS? Course highlights include:
- Robust and relevant connections with industry.

For ecologically minded students, landscape architecture’s emphasis on sustainability and the natural environment will also be rewarding.

“This whole experience has given me a deeper understanding of the realities that go into ‘citymaking’, and how valuable these skills are in determining the success and direction of a project. It’s been a definite confirmation of the great work and community that landscape architecture creates.”
