Department of Landscape Architecture
Welcome to the Department of Landscape Architecture at the EMÜ, the only department in Estonia offering an integrated five year programme leading to a master degree in Landscape Architecture!
Our mission is to provide a lively, exciting yet challenging and supportive learning and research environment where students can meet and interact with the top-class teachers from within Estonia and from elsewhere in Europe and beyond. Since landscape architecture is intimately connected with places used by people in both everyday life and also time for relaxation and recreation, the department can offer advice, carry out special studies and research and supply problem solving services to national and local government, companies and community groups.
Research and studies:
• Historic and modern cultural landscapes and settlement structure (cultural associations in the landscape)
• History of architecture and landscape architecture;
• Landscape design and aesthetics
• Public open space, healing landscapes (landscape and health), outdoor recreation areas, restoration of industrial and disturbed landscapes
