A bachelor's degree in landscape architecture is typically a necessity for those who want to become landscape architects. People who have bachelor's degrees in other fields can also get a graduate degree in landscape architecture.
Two undergraduate degrees exist in the field of landscape architecture: the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and the Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. A graduate degree in landscape architecture, known as a Master of Landscape Architecture, usually requires three years, full-time, to complete. Students who study landscape architecture take courses on subjects, such as landscape design and construction and landscape ecology. General management and history courses are other available options which apply to this field of study.
