The Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design ranks sixth among America's Best Architecture & Design Schools, according to the 10th annual America's Best Architecture Schools study by Design Intelligence.
The survey ranks accredited undergraduate and graduate programs from the perspective of leading practitioners. Conducted in mid-2008, it tapped professional practice leaders who have had direct experience in the hiring and performance evaluation of recent architecture and design graduates.
More than 200 leading firms were queried about which college and university programs have best prepared students for professional practice. This is the third straight year Washington University's Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design has earned a top 6 ranking in the study.
