Thebestcolleges.org also claims in the introduction to their top ten list that "The field of landscape architecture is expected to continue to grow over the next several years." Rankings There are two widely accepted lists that rank landscape architecture degree programs, one by thebestcolleges.org and the other by DesignIntelligence. In order to calculate their rankings, DesignIntelligence surveyed 6,000 hiring professionals, 5,000 students and 350 professors. Thebestcolleges.org used this formula to compute their list: Admissions Rate (20%) + Default Rate (20%) + Retention Rate (20%) + Graduation Rate (20%) + Percent of Students Enrolled in Online Classes (20%) = Final score. Other factors were considered when creating the list as well, such as predictors of future success and a school's commitment to online programs. Above: Every year over the past six years (2013-2018) a few more women and far less men are enrolling in landscape architectural programs across the nation. In 2016 women overtook their male counterparts to make up 51.62% of all enrollees. In 2018 that percentage has risen to 53.76%. During that time women increased their number by 202, while men dropped by 749, for a total enrollment decrease of 547.
