Our programs are among the highest-ranked landscape architecture programs in the nation, with our MLA and BSLA ranked in the Top 3, by DesignIntelligence.
Cornell University offers accredited, license-qualifying landscape architecture degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate landscape architecture degree is the only one of its kind in the Ivy League. Both academic programs provide a sound grounding in the history and theory underlying the field of landscape architecture, as well as in technical and technological expertise (plants, materials, grading, fabrication, etc.). The knowledge acquired in these courses helps support creative, space-making exploration projects in the design studio, a course that remains a constant through each semester in the respective programs.
