Arctic/subarctic landscape and territorial studies / Campus Tromsø

bombe2020-3.pngThe International Master of Landscape Architecture gives our students a platform of skills, competence and knowledge, based on design and research, to operate as professional landscape architects. It fosters the capacity to understand and act in diverse contexts that range from cities to extreme landscapes and territories. The International Master of Landscape Architecture focuses on design, emphasizing the relationship between present pressing challenges, landscape history and possible futures.

Arctic/subarctic landscape and territorial studies is a specialisation of the International Master of Landscape Architecture taking place in Tromsø at UiT / The Arctic University of Norway. This specialisation is a collaboration between AHO and UiT. 

In the Arctic/subarctic landscape and territorial studies the local is the point of departure while establishing global landscape laboratory that emphasizes arctic/subarctic conditions. Natural and anthropogenic changes affect both societies and ecosystems. This Tromsø-based specialisation aims to investigate and create new knowledge on how to protect, design and develop highly vulnerable landscapes within changing environments and communities. 

The education is studio-based in a continous and close interaction with international teachers, practitioners and researchers. This educational milieu is based at UiT’s Academy of Arts, and operates in close collaboration with the rest of UiT. Thus, including a breadth of academic knowledge and promoting constant experimentation with diverse landscape media. UiT provides access to a diverse palette of tools and shared resources for the students in landscape architecture.

The studio-based teaching differentiates between urban, landscape and territorial practices. These practices enable different perspectives on the range of human interferences that shape and have shaped landscapes and ecosystems in the Arctic/subarctic. The perspectives overlap and are thematised in the studio courses. 

The education ensures competent designers, capable of operating within the framework of a sustainable development of societies. A prerequisite is to master the materials, methods and instruments of landscape architecture. After graduation, our candidates are able to contribute to the practical, artistic and scientific development of the profession. 

AHO's Master of Landscape Architecture is a two-year 120 ects education. Admission requires a bachelor in landscape architecture, architecture or equivalent education. 

The Master of Landscape Architecture includes two specialisation in two locations: Landscape Architecture studies at AHO Campus Oslo and Arctic/subarctic landscape and territorial studies at UiT Campus Tromsø. Read more about the Landscape Architecture studies in Oslo here.
