About the Landscape Architecture Bachelor’s Program
The landscape architecture program vision is to advance the discipline of landscape architecture through innovative learning, research, and service activities. First professional B.L.A. and M.L.A. degrees are accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board. Student learning outcomes are coordinated through the curriculum and in each semester to develop creative leaders ready for professional licensure and practice in the public or private sector.
The program specializes in semi-arid landscapes, while engaging design and planning issues critical to a sustainable, resilient, adaptable earth and its growing urban populations. Students are off-campus the spring and summer of the third year on extended internship (January through August), or a combination of study abroad and a three-month internship.
Students should note the curriculum is sequential and LARC courses must be taken in order as outlined in the recommended curriculum below. Failure to earn a C or better in LARC courses will delay graduation for a full year. Transfer students will likely require two summer sessions and three full years to achieve all course work required for an accredited degree leading toward licensure.
