students working with faculty member on a project outsideOn May 14, 1982, the Purdue Board of Trustees approved the new Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture degree to be offered by the School of Agriculture.

Landscape Horticulture first appeared as an option in the Department of Horticulture in the 1964-65 School of Agriculture catalog and was changed to Landscape Architecture in the 1967-68 catalog.

The Purdue Landscape Architecture program was nationally accredited in 1976. Until 1982-83, all Landscape Architecture graduates received the Bachelor of Science degree. On several occasions, accreditation reviews recommended the degree title to include “Landscape Architecture.” That was adopted in 1982.

Twenty-three individuals received the first Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture degrees awarded in May 1983. Nine hundred and thirty nine B.S.L.A. degrees have been awarded.
