Stanislaus State Honored By Washington Monthly

September 02, 2015


California State University, Stanislaus has received more national accolades, with Washington Monthly’s annual college rankings guide including the University among its top schools in the nation for master’s programs, and one of the top schools in the west region for value.

The publication lists Stanislaus State as No. 28 in the nation for master’s programs, using a methodology that includes “social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and Ph.D.s), and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).” Stanislaus State was ranked 47th in the nation last year in the same category.

In the publication’s “Bang For the Buck” category, Stanislaus State was ranked No. 10 out of 233 schools in the west region, based on the “economic value students receive per dollar.”
