The University of Hong Kong


Bachelor of Arts in Landscape Studies 園境學文學士


Short Description

The Bachelor of Arts in Landscape Studies degree gives students the knowledge and technical skills to create sustainable design solutions to complex development issues, through respect for the environment, culture and society, and the intelligent use of materials and technologies intelligently.

BA(LS) courses include practical and theoretical studies in landscape design, history, theory, ecology, landscape sciences, planting, sustainability, community, construction technology, visual communication and digital technology.  Landscape design studio projects are based on topical issues, and students explore diverse approaches to a wide range of environmental and development challenges, looking to create places that have identity, vibrancy and diversity.

Undergraduate students are encouraged to participate in the Faculty's overseas field trips, community workshops and exchange programmes with overseas institutions.  A key component of the programme is the semester students spend in the Faculty's Shanghai Study Centre.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination
