The Department of Landscape Architecture offers fully accredited Master of Landscape Architecture and Bachelor of Science in Landscape Archtiecture programs. Maitaining accreditation is a central requirement of offering professional degrees in Landscape Architecture.
Accreditation is granted by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB), an autonomous committee of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). the LAAB evaluates and confers accreditation upon landscape architecture programs which have demonstrated the ability to meet externally mandated minimum standards as well as their own stated program objectives.
Accreditations conferred by LAAB last for a term of five years; CPPLA will be undertaking its re-accreditation process in the spring of 2017. As part of the accreditation process, the department will be exhibiting student work from the past five years. This exhibition of student work will be reviewed by the LAAB, and will also be open to the public throughout April:
- April 2-16: BSLA accreditation show
- April 17-30: MLA accreditation show
