MSU program makes national top 15

Mississippi State University's undergraduate program in landscape architecture is listed among the top 15 programs in the country by a national publication that promotes quality design education.

DesignIntelligence, a monthly journal published by Greenway Communications for the Design Futures Council, released the rankings in its sixth edition of America's Best Architecture and Design Schools. MSU was 15th out of 66 programs the publication ranked, with Ohio State University topping the list.

"I think the program earned this recognition through the commitment and dedication of the faculty to teaching," said department head Cameron Man. He said it is the first time the publication has added rankings of landscape architecture to its ongoing assessments of architecture and interior design programs.

DesignIntelligence's complete listing of its 15 best landscape architecture schools include, in order, Ohio State, Georgia, Kansas State, Pennsylvania State, Louisiana State, Cornell, Purdue, California Polytechnic-San Luis Obispo and Michigan State (tie), Ball State and California State Polytechnic-Pomona (tie), Iowa State and Massachusetts-Amherst (tie), Virginia Polytechnic Institute and MSU.
