Most Hired from Landscape Architecture Schools


Schools were grouped into size categories based on the average number of graduates each year in their combined undergraduate and graduate programs. Some schools did not provide information on the size of their graduating classes and could not be categorized. Consequently, they were omitted from the rankings. A full explanation of our approach is available on the methodology page. Below are the most hired from landscape architecture schools from the DesignIntelligence 2019 School Rankings Survey.
