The mission of the Landscape Architecture program is to offer a diverse undergraduate curriculum that exposes students to a wide range of practice and further educational opportunities facing the region through education, research and service to the public within a comprehensive design school.
Our program offers an accredited, five-year Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) professional degree that prepares students for entry into the profession or further graduate studies. By combining the degree with our planning curriculum, our graduates are also eligible to sit for the American Institute of Certified Planners exam after the required professional internship. We think the dual preparation serves our students well.
We have active student chapters of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) and Sigma Lambda Alpha (SLA), the national honor society. Our students have won six national ASLA awards in design and research over the past five years. In addition, we participate in a number of outreach studios that serve the state of Nevada and give students practical experience prior to graduation. Our alumni have gone on to successful careers in private, public, and academic practice. They have pursued graduate degrees at UNLV and at other universities. They have also become leaders in the Nevada ASLA and other organizations. In short, we are proud of our program and welcome you to join us
