Since 1999, DesignIntelligence has conducted surveys to determine the top schools in architecture and design.

This year, we have  included more information to help prospective students evaluate options among architecture, interior architecture and interior design, and landscape architecture schools. We asked professionals to give us their perspective on:

  • Most admired schools
  • Schools they hire from the most
  • Top ranked schools in 12 focus areas such as design technology, design theory and practice, collaboration, communication skills, and more

We found out from deans and program chairs about major changes in course offerings, and we asked students to share their experiences with the following:

  • Overall quality of their programs and facilities
  • Quality of preparation in key areas such as design theory and practice, research methodology, communication skills, interdisciplinary studies, and more
