School of Architecture Programs Receive High Rankings

Nov. 19, 2009

AUSTIN, Texas — The School of Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin has been ranked fifth in the nation in both its undergraduate and graduate programs by DesignIntelligence, a journal that produces the only recognized rankings for accredited bachelor's and master's programs in architecture in the United States.

The graduate program ranking is the highest achieved by a public university in the nation.

The undergraduate program in interior design, the smallest in the nation, was ranked 10th. The graduate landscape architecture program, with only three graduating classes, was ranked 12th. Fritz Steiner, dean of the School of Architecture, was recognized as "one of the most admired educators of 2010," based on input from hundreds of design professionals, academic department heads and students.

DesignIntelligence is the bimonthly journal of the Design Futures Council, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank whose executive board includes representatives from some of America's most widely known design firms, schools and manufacturers.

Good to hear! My brother goes to New School of Architecture in San Diego and I loves it. Architecture seems to be a great field to go into!
