An accredited Master of Landscape Architecture is the international standard of Landscape Architecture education and can open-up new employment and business opportunities in New Zealand and overseas.

Lincoln University offers you two taught master’s options, depending on your previous study. Both will allow you to grow an exciting future in the industry.

Our 120-credit (one year) Master of Landscape Architecture offers those with an accredited Bachelor of Landscape Architecture the opportunity to pursue more advanced study, such as evidence-based design.

Our 240-credit degree is a two-year programme designed as a first professional degree in Landscape Architecture for students with an undergraduate university degree in any discipline, including unaccredited degrees associated with Landscape Architecture.

Both our taught master's options are accredited by the New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects (NZILA). Graduates are eligible to become registered professionals and are highly sought-after in public and private sectors in Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia and further afield.
