Penn State's landscape architecture highly ranked in survey

Penn State’s Department of Landscape Architecture, part of the H. Campbell and Eleanor R. Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, has once again been named the “most admired” undergraduate landscape architecture program in the United States in the DesignIntelligence survey of landscape architecture deans and department heads. The department is recognized for “its integration of ecology and design, its new facilities and cutting-edge technologies.” The program received the same honor last year, the first year of the survey.

In the listing of top programs, the undergraduate program was ranked number six out of 49 accredited programs. The department has been ranked among the top 10 programs in the country since 2005, the year DesignIntelligence began ranking landscape architecture programs.

DesignIntelligence is a publication of the Design Futures Council, a global interdisciplinary network of design, product and construction leaders. For the rankings, leading practitioners across the country rank the best schools for preparing students for practice in architecture, landscape architecture, interior design and industrial design.
