About Landscape Studies at The University of Hong Kong

Programme Aims and Features

The Bachelor of Arts in Landscape Studies degree gives students the knowledge and technical skills to create sustainable design solutions to complex development issues, through respect for the environment, culture and society, and the intelligent use of materials and technologies.

BA(LS) courses include practical and theoretical studies in landscape design, history, theory, ecology, landscape sciences, planting, sustainability, community, construction technology, visual communication and digital technology. Landscape design studio projects are based on topical issues, and students explore diverse approaches to a wide range of environmental and development challenges, looking to create places that have identity, vibrancy and diversity.

Undergraduate students are encouraged to participate in the Faculty's overseas field trips, community workshops, and exchange programmes with overseas institutions.

Professional Recognition

BA(LS) is a first degree leading on to the more specialised, professional Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) degree, and then to a professional qualification and registration as a landscape architect. The BA(LS) programme provides an excellent general arts education that will give students the ability to enter other related design or research fields.
