"The Bachelor and Master programmes Landscape Architecture and Spatial Planning focus on the human activities that shape and govern landscapes at various scales and how these landscapes are experiences and used by people. Central attention is paid to the process of intervention in landscapes to create new or revitalized places by means of planning and design, and on sound academic reflection on this process. In order to comprehend the complex relationships between people, nature, heritage and landscape, the study integrates concepts and approaches from both the creative arts and the natural and social sciences and incorporates the latest advances in technology."
