Landscape and Wellbeing (MSc)


Course Description

Programme description

Delivered by an expert academic team, including members of OPENspace, the international research centre for inclusive access to outdoor environments, this programme takes an innovative, interdisciplinary approach to the study of salutogenic landscapes and the importance of the environment for human health and wellbeing.

In providing a unique opportunity for academics and practitioners working in landscape architecture, planning, design, geography, public health, psychology, epidemiology, horticulture and ecology to understand the evidence base and to operationalise the planning and design of salutogenic landscapes, the programme offers the most advanced theoretical and methodological access to the latest research in the field.

Students will be encouraged to translate research into practice, develop a better understanding of the evidence base to inform their work and guide more effective environmental interventions.

Programme structure

The programme combines lectures, seminars and project work with student-led oral and graphic presentations, essays and a supervised dissertation. Guest lecturers within OPENspace’s network of professional contacts will further augment the programme.

It is structured around four compulsory courses and three option courses, drawn from architecture, landscape architecture, and from other Schools within the University of Edinburgh.

Career opportunities

This degree provides preparation for work in sectors including landscape architecture, planning, public health, human geography, horticulture and ecology, in addition to deepening engagement with landscape and wellbeing for those established practitioners in architecture, landscape architecture and health. It also prepares students for doctoral-level research.
