LAAB Accreditation

LAAB Accreditation

The Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB) is a specialized agency that accredits educational programs leading to first professional degrees at the bachelor’s or master’s level in landscape architecture in the United States and its territories.

Use the map to locate LAAB-accredited landscape architecture programs by state. Programs are identified by degree: BSLA or BLA for undergraduate programs, MLA for master’s programs. LR (last review) is the date of the last complete review by LAAB. IR (initial review) is the first review of a program. NR (next review) is the date of the next scheduled complete review. The maximum term for LAAB accreditation is six years. Candidacy programs are emerging programs that are not yet eligible to apply for accreditation. Candidacy programs have made a commitment to apply for initial accreditation within one year of their first graduating class.
