Introduction to the School
The School of Landscape Architecture at Lincoln University has been celebrating - not only did it turn 40 in 2009 but it also moved into a new custom-designed building.
In 1969, Lincoln University (then Lincoln College) started New Zealand’s first professional qualification in Landscape Architecture. It is now widely known as the home of the leading professional Landscape Architecture degree in New Zealand.
Nearly 700 students have graduated from Lincoln’s Landscape Architecture programme, and this year over 140 students are studying in the school towards Bachelors, Masters and PhD degrees.
It is highly regarded internationally for its research, publishing its own refereed journal (Landscape Review), and combined with planning, has received the top research ranking among New Zealand’s design programmes. Lincoln has developed and enviable and international reputation for the quality of its landscape architecture graduates, which sees them recognised and valued all over the world.
