It’s a record year for the University of Missouri–St. Louis, which has 10 graduate programs ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report with the recent inclusion of UMSL’s Doctor in Nursing Practice program. UMSL’s Master of Science in Nursing program has consistently been ranked in the top 100 for the past three years. Rankings were released this week in the 2017 U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools Guide Book.

Of note, UMSL’s Master of Social Work program climbed 18 spots from its previous ranking, and the criminology and criminal justice graduate program maintained its high standing of No. 4 in the nation.

The six additional UMSL programs recognized are education, public policy administration, clinical psychology, psychology, biology and chemistry and biochemistry.

U.S. News analyzes more than 1,900 graduate programs in various disciplines each year to create the rankings.
