LAAB Accreditation

LAAB Accreditation of BLA + MLA

First accredited in 1966 (BLA), LAEP was the 19th landscape architecture program accredited in the U.S. In 1987 the MLA 1st Professional Degree was also accredited. Landscape architecture programs across North America are accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB). Programs are reviewed every 6 years by visiting teams that include an academic, a professional, and an academic administrator. The 3-day on campus reviews consider all facets of undergraduate and graduate programs (see Standards). The MLA and BLA at Utah State University both remain fully accredited programs, having been most recently reviewed in Spring 2011, with each being granted 6 additional years of accreditation (Next review: Spr. 2017). Findings, in the form of Recommendations and Suggestions, are provided for each program by the LAAB. Those documents for the 2011 review are available here:
