Stanislaus State has earned another prestigious recognition for its academic programs and overall excellence as U.S. News & World Report released its latest rankings that includes three of the University’s graduate programs as among the best in the nation. 

Stan State’s graduate programs in business administration, public education and social work were among the top 300 programs in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report’s rankings released last week.  

In its annual graduate programs rankings, the national publication noted each program's commitment to providing students with flexible educational options while offering a rigorous and high-quality academic experience that equips them with the skills they need to advance in their careers. 

U.S. News & World Report’s  ranking methodology considered criteria that included peer assessment reviews and graduation rates. University rankings can serve as a valuable resource for prospective graduate students seeking programs that align with their academic and career goals. 

The rankings are the most recent accolades for Stan State’s academic programs. Last fall, U.S. News & World Report ranked Stan State in the Top 10 Best in the West in four categories, including No. 2 for social mobility and No. 4 top public schools.
