Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board

As stated in their website, “Accreditation is a non-governmental, voluntary system of self-regulation. Its core is the concept of self-evaluation. The Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB) accreditation process evaluates each program on the basis of its stated objectives and compliance to externally mandated minimum standards. The program conducts a self-study to evaluate how well it is meeting its educational goals. LAAB then provides an independent assessment, which determines if a program meets accreditation requirements. Programs leading to first professional degrees at the bachelor’s or master’s levels in the United States are eligible to apply for accreditation from LAAB.”

The Escuela Internacional de Diseño y Arquitectura has initiated accreditation procedures for the following:

  • Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture

                  123 credits

  • Date of the First Visit: May 6-9, 2018
  • Current Term of Accreditation:

The program is submitting the Self-Evaluation Report and course work and is awaiting the scheduled visit for the candidacy status evaluation.*

*The accreditation application does not guarantee accreditation or any temporary accreditation status.
