Comments about Bachelor of Environments (Landscape Management) - On Campus - Parkville - Victoria

  • Objectives
    The Landscape Management major explores rural and urban ecosystems and the human activities that shape these systems. Parks and public open space, protected areas, residential environments and agricultural landscapes provide important ecological, amenity and social values, affording – for example – biodiversity, recreation opportunities and economic products such as food production or housing. Managing and protecting these values requires professionals with a broad understanding of how these landscapes function, and their use and importance to society. The Landscape Management major explores the physical and social components of these systems such as plants, fauna, soils, water, social and economic sub-systems and the complex interrelations between these components. Throughout the major, understanding of ecosystems is explored in the context of management issues and strategies, allowing students to develop skills for professional practice in landscape management.
