Philadelphia University’s landscape architecture program has earned another six-year accreditation from the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB). The landscape architecture program is now accredited through Dec. 31, 2020.

The accrediting board praised the program’s environmentally minded curriculum and emphasis on sustainable design, calling it “one of the most highly unique in the country.”

LAAB also cited the program’s commitment to working toward design solutions for local communities, stating, “the program strives to provide local and regional leadership in confronting ecological issues of the urban environments within the Philadelphia Metropolitan area.”

PhilaU’s Nexus Learning approach to higher education provides students with opportunities to work collaboratively with other disciplines and community partners to help solve real-world challenges and improve community life.

Landscape architecture faculty are committed to their students and the profession. Through their continued work in their diverse fields of expertise, they bring access to the latest technologies, design methods and innovative thinking to the program.
