As the last part of their studies, landscape architecture students work on their MSc thesis. It is proof of the ability to work independently on a subject and to produce a report that combines theoretical input with a design component. The thesis typically takes six months and most of the theses subjects are related to the research that is going on at the chair group of landscape architecture.
