The program, which is a part of the Stuckeman School, jumped two spots from its No. 3 ranking a year ago. Penn State redeems its No. 1 ranking for the first time since 2007.

Penn State received the top ranking in preparedness and top five rankings in three of the six skill rankings: Communication, Cross-Disciplinary Teamwork, and Sustainability Design Practices and Principles.

Penn State’s landscape architecture graduate program was also ranked No. 7 in the country, sustaining its ranking from last year. The university’s undergraduate architecture program also ranked No. 13 in the country and No. 5 in the eastern United States.
