SUMMARY

Majoring in Landscape Architecture is not only a valuable choice, but often a critical first step for pupils choosing to begin a career as an architectural consultant, a corporate real estate agent, or a senior landscape architect. In fact, landscape architecture is an uncommon major ranking as the 245th most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 717 landscape architecture degrees conferred. In-state tuition for landscape architecture at private schools is, on average, 5 times more expensive than their public equivalents.

With only 54 universities offering landscape architecture there might be limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you are looking to surround yourself with other landscape architecture undergraduates, look at institutions in California which have the most undergrads admitted to landscape architecture annually. More generally, the top region to study landscape architecture is in the Southeast region with University of Georgia, University of Kentucky, and West Virginia University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to study landscape architecture is the Southeastern Conference with University of Georgia, University of Kentucky, and Texas A & M University-College Station representing the conference. On that topic, our choice for the best college for landscape architecture is Cornell University. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The 'best' school does not have to be the best school for you. There can be lots of angels to weigh when choosing ​university. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely modify one's feelings of which university to attend. At authority.org, we examined the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which landscape architecture university is home to the top campus, the answer is Rutgers University-New Brunswick. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which school has the best campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more so we can compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life and, from that list, our pick of the school with the best student life for landscape architecture is Cornell University. Curious why? Keep reading to discover more about Authority's top choices. Many of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If expense is a major deciding factor in your decisions, you might be cautious about Cornell University. Cornell University appears to be the most expensive college for landscape architecture, at least for out of state enrollment. We have an entire page for the most expensive schools that might put the price tag at Cornell University into perspective. Additionally, you may be interested to know that landscape architecture is the 235th most expensive degree in the nation, with an average associated cost of $28,500. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for landscape architecture nationally is Michigan demonstrated by a tuition of $40,384 at the main college in Michigan Michigan State University. Even more broadly, the most expensive region for landscape architecture is the New England region which is best demonstrated with University of Connecticut with a cost of $36,466, University of Massachusetts-Amherst with a cost of $35,112, and University of Rhode Island with a cost of $29,710.

Our cheapest region for landscape architecture is the Plains region which is represented by Iowa State University with a cost of $23,230 and South Dakota State University with a cost of $11,172. In better news, the most affordable school for landscape architecture is Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College. Our entire list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state students can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $11,500 for a degree in landscape architecture. That cost increases intensely to a median of $29,500 for the out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the university with the best value for landscape architecture: Cornell University. On this page you will see our comprehensive list about the universities we believe to be the best value overall. Bear in mind, this idea is predicated on out-of-state tuition costs. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for landscape architecture students vary widely, but two-years after leaving college students will regularly earn around $55,900. While there is much variation in pay; highest paid earners can make up to $83,100. Even right out of college, the minimum earning positions within the landscape architecture space make $37,800, which could be worse. The top earning graduates from landscape architecture attended Cornell University and if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of landscape architecture is on the higher end, ranking in the 73rd percentile of majors nationally. The university with the highest composite diversity for landscape architecture is Cornell University and here you can find our general list for the universities which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Landscape Architecture only is in the 64th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, in the 66th percentile. White students compose the largest proportion, 54%, of scholars studying landscape architecture. Additionally, 53% of undergrads pursuing a landscape architecture degree are women.

The median score for landscape architecture professors is 3.7 stars, a rating that is 7% lower than the median score for every major; which is a subpar ranking. If you are interested in the most popular landscape architecture professor in the country, look no further than Michael Martin at Iowa State University. It might come as a shock, but the top ranked landscape architecture professors according to students are at Iowa State University. As we incorporate data beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the university with the overall best professors for landscape architecture is Cornell University. You can find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest examples of professors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for landscape architecture is Cornell University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a detailed list for the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, here at Authority we hope you believe that approaching academics with a lens primarily shaped by superlatives might create issues. We encourage you to look at some of our more focused pages on different topics and read a few of our background articles on useful details to look out for as you continue your university search.
