The master’s programme BCN Master in Landscape Architecture Extended is an intensive programme (developed over 18 months) made up of four core or post-graduate workshops, three intensive in-ternationall workshops, one critique on contemporary landscape projects and a final project. This final project will involve a period of work experience in a landscape architect’s office for a minimum of 10 wee-ks along with a thesis, and each student’s personal and critical research project.
Each workshop will deal with current and real situations presented in a specific social and economic context. The first stage of the project will be a proposed field visit with the students organised in multi-discipline groups to carry out the project. These workshops will be led by expert tea-chers in the field of intervention and with recognised professional experience. They will be responsible for tutoring and mana-ging, through correcting and guiding the students in their projects. The lectures and conferences will be given by recognised and experienced acade-mics and professionals to help the stu-dents gain the required knowledge and understanding of the concepts applicable to their projects. A corrective assessment will be carried out half-way through the workshop (week 3) and a final presentation (week 6) at the end of the course.
Classes are held four evenings a week , Tuesday, Wednesday ,Thursday and Friday except for intensive courses , which are Monday through Friday.
We organize tours and excursions related to the themes of each workshop during the weekend, in addition students have to attend the parallel activities that are usually organized outside the schedule set by the program (lectures, excursions, etc.).
