Landscape architects typically need a bachelor’s or master’s degree in landscape architecture or a related field, such as architecture. There are two undergraduate landscape architect degrees: a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) and a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture (BSLA).
Becoming a Landscape Architect may take about six years of education and work experience. If you start with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture (BLA) degree, you should complete your educational requirements in about four years.
