Msc.Landscape Planning

Landscape Planning (LPA) is the newest of the four accredited Masters Study programs offered in English at FES. This exciting new degree program blends together elements of landscape architecture, applied landscape ecology, spatial and regional planning, landscape history and natural sciences.

This program is open to graduates with a background in environmental sciences, landscape ecology, conservation biology, urban–regional or spatial planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering or math, and other related earth-science studies. Previous course credit in dendrology, plant or soil science, planning and landscape architecture is a plus for entering this degree program but not a requirement. International students from other countries and the greater EU are strongly encouraged to apply.

Students learn by working on real projects and become skilled in applied sustainable land use planning and resource management. We often focus this work on the dynamic and varied landscape of the Czech Republic, however students will also travel to neighbouring countries in Central Europe to study to explore how sustainable approaches to landscape planning can be applied elsewhere. Professors in the Faculty are actively conducting field research on land use change and other man-made and natural phenomena here the Czech Republic, however many also work word-wide in their given area of scholarship.

LAP is an accredited degree program required for practice of landscape engineering and design in the Czech Republic, the EU and applicable to international locations as well. The two-year study program consists of required courses and research-based field studies.

Course work includes: landscape ecology, landscape architecture, spatial planning, land management, landscape history, ArcGIS, aquatic ecosystems, land reclamation, soils and erosion control, forest management, and settlement patterns of the Czech Republic. Students may take additional classes not included in the LPA study plan; these will be added to your diploma supplement. Resources are available for graduates who choose to continue their studies at the PhD level.
Erasmus exchange students can enrol for one or two semesters
