University of Missouri-St. Louis degree programs have once again been recognized as among the best in the country.

UMSL earned two top-10 placements in Intelligent.com’s 2021 list of “Best Degree Programs.”

The Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice’s MA program placed first in the publication’s “Best Master’s in Criminology” rankings, and the Supply Chain & Analytics Department’s MS program placed eighth in the “Best Master’s in Supply Chain Management” rankings.

Intelligent.com evaluated programs at 2,277 accredited colleges and universities across the country for the digital research guide. The publication compared similar programs via five broad categories: program strength, student readiness, return on investment, cost and student engagement.

The final rankings considered factors such as curriculum quality, graduation rate, reputation and post-graduate employment, which a proprietary algorithm synthesized into a single score on a scale of zero to 100.

UMSL’s graduate program in criminology and criminal justice scored a 99.9 and was identified as the best all-around choice for students. The university’s graduate program in supply chain and analytics wasn’t far behind, scoring a 94. It was praised for providing quality internships.

In addition to two top-10 rankings, UMSL was ranked 11 and 17 on the “Best Master’s in Accounting” and the “Best Master’s in School Counseling” lists, respectively.
