Bachelor’s in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning

Our eight-semester degree program with the degree “Bachelor of Engineering” covers a discipline that is extraordinarily broad both in terms of content and methods.

Besides the classic forms of an academic education (lectures, exercises, seminars), practical forms of teaching and learning characterize the Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning program. That includes the integrated 20-week practical semester, project work that starts in the third semester, participation in educational excursions in Germany and abroad, and the extensive inclusion of experienced practitioners in the program.

Studies are completed with the bachelor’s thesis, for which our students have a total of ten weeks. After this, they publicly defend the thesis.

Program elements

Our practically focused program encompasses the following:

  • Compulsory and elective modules
  • Compulsory projects 1-4
  • Internship (sem. 6)
  • Mobility window (sem. 7)
  • Bachelor’s thesis (sem. 8)
  • Modules

    The bachelor’s in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning is structured with modules.

    A module is a teaching and learning unit with related content that is completed by an examination or other assessable coursework.

    Besides the compulsory modules, a minimum number of elective modules must be completed.

    Our module handbook describes the content of each module and gives information about the semester in which the module is offered, the workload, how many credits are awarded for the module, and a reading list for the subject.

  • Credits

    Credits are awarded after successfully completing each module, the internship, and the bachelor’s thesis.

    The number of credits depends on the workload required for the respective module. This includes:

    • Participation in courses (required attendance)
    • Preparatory and follow-up work for courses
    • Studying for exams
    • Completing coursework or exams
    • Internships
    • Self-study
    • Bachelor’s thesis

  • Exams

    Exams complete a module and give our students the chance to prove what they have learned. Besides classic written and oral exams, there is coursework, seminar papers, and the public defense of project and final papers.

    Important: Registration for bachelor’s exams is binding. It must be done using HIS-QIS at the latest five days before the exam date.

    Students who do not show up to exams for which they have registered and did not cancel their registration by 5 days before the exam day through the HIS-QIS online portal receive the grade 5 (fail). Registration for the exam must be cancelled using HIS-QIS at the latest five days before the exam date. Exceptions are illnesses and other unforeseeable events.

    Send a form directly to the examiner to register for exams other than those in your own degree program that cannot be signed up for using HIS-QIS. This form is available in the Examinations Office.

    For oral exams, it is also necessary to sign up on the examiner’s list of time slots.

  • Internationality

    The students have the possibility to gain practical experience abroad during a study abroad program at one of Anhalt University’s partner universities or with a stay abroad at a foreign institution. Multiple-day excursions abroad also offer this opportunity.

    Getting to know each other is also made possible by the international students who study at Anhalt University for a time. The exchange of international experiences can also be done with contact to the students in the international master's degree program Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) on campus.

    Due to various contractual partnerships and internationally oriented research as well as the faculty’s work in national and international scientific associations, international interdisciplinary projects and work in international teams is offered and encouraged.

    Agreements with the partners guarantee that coursework done abroad is recognized for your studies here.

    The ERASMUS program and the “mobility window” in the 7th semester make it easier to integrate a stay abroad in your program.
