The Sam Fox School's Master of Architecture program is ranked 10th in the nation, according to DesignIntelligence's annual list of America's Top Architecture Schools.

The rankings are based on feedback from hiring managers at leading architecture, landscape architecture, industrial design, and interior design firms—as well as students and academic leaders—about which programs have best prepared students for professional practice.

"The choice of where to go to architecture school is a big question," wrote Anna Fixsen and Suzanne Stephens of Architectural Record, noting that the report also breaks down its list of schools by skill set, including "the best for research, design, sustainability, and construction knowledge."

In discussing the future of architecture education, David G. Gilmore, DesignIntelligence president and CEO, noted that, "We were encouraged by the positive dynamic of the faculty to lean in, keep learning, and explore the many new approaches and technologies impacting the profession."
