The University of Baltimore College of Public Affairs once again ranked in the top 25 percent of all public affairs schools of its kind in U.S. News & World Report's 2020 edition of the best graduate schools in the nation. The college is ranked #60, climbing four spots from its 2019 ranking.
The rankings are based on peer reviews about program excellence and statistics that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research and students.
"This is our third straight year climbing in the U.S. News rankings. I attribute that rise not only to the strength and distinction of our nationally-accredited Master of Public Administration program, but also to our faculty and their world-class research and scholarship," said Roger Hartley, dean of the College of Public Affairs. "It is an honor to be ranked among prestigious schools that are a mix of Research 1 and private institutions, many much larger than us. This ranking is a testament to the tenacity and grit of our faculty, staff, students and alumni, and I thank them all for contributing to the success and national recognition of our college."
UB tied with equivalent programs at Cleveland State University, CUNY-John Jay College, the Naval Postgraduate School, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, the University of North Carolina-Charlotte and the University of Pennsylvania, all in the #60 position.
