Top 15 Landscape Architecture Program

Iowa State University’s undergraduate landscape architecture program is ranked among the top 15 in the United States by DesignIntelligence, a bimonthly publication for leaders in the design professions. The magazine’s annual report, “America’s Best Architecture and Design Schools,” is the only national college ranking survey that focuses exclusively on design. Rankings cover accredited programs in architecture, interior design and landscape architecture.

For 2017-2018, the ISU undergraduate landscape architecture program ranked 11th among 43 accredited undergraduate programs in the U.S. In 2010, the publication also listed Iowa State as one of “America’s World-Class Landscape Architecture Schools.” (This designation is not awarded annually.) In 2013, Associate Professor Heidi Hohmann was honored by the publication as one of the 30 Most Admired Design Educators in the nation.
