The Tulane School of Architecture is named a top institution in a recent prominent national ranking of architecture and design schools.

Tulane’s undergraduate architecture program placed at No. 16 and the graduate program at No. 31 in the “Most Admired Architecture Schools” category of DesignIntelligence Quarterly’s 2018-2019 America's Top Ranked Architecture & Design Schools survey. This is the undergraduate program’s third consecutive appearance in the top 20.

The annual survey polled more than 6,000 industry hiring professionals on which accredited schools they most admire and hire from, and how recent graduates are performing in key focus areas.

“As a small school with young programs, this solid ranking is impressive,” said Iñaki Alday, School of Architecture dean. “Most importantly, we are on a positive track, building our reputation among our peers and professional firms.”

The DesignIntelligence rankings are the most widely recognized among architecture and design schools and are referenced by many prospective students.

“Recognition in the rankings is great for our visibility, but our focus is the strength and innovative character of our mission,” said Alday. “Tulane has always been an intellectually independent and forward-looking school, committed to positively impacting and transforming the world and our community. The challenges that we are facing in both are urgent and require our full attention.”
