NDSU offers a 5-year LAAB accredited, first-professional Master of Landscape Architecture degree program housed primarily in two beautifully restored historic industrial buildings in downtown Fargo, which has emerged as an exciting, student-oriented urban district.

Most students entering the graduate program in landscape architecture come directly from the NDSU pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design program. However the program is open to individuals who have earned an undergraduate design degree. Students entering with an undergraduate degree from outside institutions will be required to complete 55 credits to earn the MLA degree.


The curriculum includes field trips to cities across the country and is supported by a professionally staffed woodshop, digital media labs, laser cutters, and 3D printing for model-making. Both traditional and digital media are emphasized. An optional semester abroad, plus foreign study tours during summers are offered.


Program Accreditation

In the United States, most registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure.

The Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit professional degree programs in landscape architecture offered by institutions within the U.S. has a mission to evaluate, advocate for, and advance the quality of education in a professional program leading to a degree in landscape architecture.
