Frank’s Answer

I can't speak about landscaping architecture, but I can talk about degrees in general. Usually a bachelors degree will give you the basic skills about a subject and a masters degree gives you more in-depth knowledge. Often a bachelors degree is required for entry level positions. If you continue your education and obtain a masters degree, the extra knowledge (and degree) could better position you for jobs in that area.

Alice’s Answer

There are actually college programs available for both bachelor degrees and masters degrees in landscape architecture. Usually in order to successfully apply to either program, there are certain minimum qualifications that you are required to satisfy. An important factor to consider when deciding on what school to apply for, is whether or not that program is accredited by LAAB. The Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB) evaluates the quality of the educational program offered at each school and determines if it meets regulation standards.

Danielle’s Answer

A landscape architect in most states you need to be licensed.

One of the requirements is usually a bachelor degree and a certain number of years experience under a licensed landscape architect. This test is not easy. When I took the exam the test had 5 parts that encompassed everything from grading and drainage, road design, water movement in a watershed. These are very technical areas so you can see why you would need a degree. As for the masters. I think that is something teachers need or something required of very specific areas. I really haven't run into many people getting their masters unless their company wants it and pays for it. Hope this helps. Now with that being said. There is a huge area of study that does not require a degree and this is landscape design. This field is more specialized in landscape and plants. This field has an associate degree you can get but you can also get all the experience you need working with someone in that field. Good luck on your career goal.
