Multiple graduate programs named among U.S. News’ best
Several Baylor programs were named among the nation’s best in U.S. News & World Report‘s 2009 edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” released in late March.
The Baylor-U.S. Army doctoral program in physical therapy ranked fifth nationally, while the Baylor-U.S. Army master’s degree program in health administration ranked 20th. On the school’s main campus, Baylor Law’s trial advocacy program rose to No. 8 in the nation.
The biggest jump of any Baylor program came in the School of Social Work, as its master’s degree program has jumped from 87th in 2004 to 60th this year. As has become standard for Baylor, multiple other graduate programs were also honored among the nation’s best: law (55th out of 195), speech-language pathology (60th of 244), business (71st of 425), nursing master’s program (72nd of 395), biological sciences doctoral program (77th of 249), clinical psychology doctoral program (83rd of 209), and the school of education (103rd of 278).
Sic ’em, Baylor educators!
