Iowa State's undergraduate Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) degree program is nationally accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The BLA program received a full six-year accreditation in 2007 and will be reviewed again in 2013.
The ISU landscape architecture program also offers a Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) degree to students who hold an undergraduate professional degree in the design fields. The department has recently redeveloped its master's degree programs to create a first professional MLA, for which we are seeking accreditation, as well as a Master of Science in Landscape Architecture (MSLA) as a research or post-professional degree. Both new degree programs were approved during Spring 2010.
