Accreditation

The four-year Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree offered at the School of Design and Construction is fully accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB).

Accreditation is a non-governmental, voluntary system of self-regulation. Its core is the concept of self-evaluation. The  (LAAB) accreditation process evaluates each program on the basis of its stated objectives and compliance to externally mandated minimum standards.

The program conducts a self-study to evaluate how well it is meeting its educational goals. LAAB then provides an independent assessment, which determines if a program meets accreditation requirements. Programs leading to first professional degrees at the bachelor’s or master’s levels in the United States are eligible to apply for accreditation from LAAB.
