What do you study in Landscape Architecture and Spatial Planning?
Maybe you will develop the landscape of the future with your creative brain. For example, think of a new, healthy living environment for residents of a residential area. Create a new landscape design for sustainable food production. Think about a new environment around rivers that is resistant to climate change. Or focus on converting an old military training area into a wooded area where people and animals can live together.

During your studies you will learn everything about taking into account the wishes of residents, users or other stakeholders (social science side) and nature and animals (the natural science side). On this basis, you form a sustainable connection between ecology, soil, hydrology, cultural history, geography, economy, policy and various stakeholders. Then support your own design with a powerful piece of scientific analysis.
