Florida State University graduate programs moving up in rankings
Florida State University's graduate programs in education, law, statistics, chemistry and physics continue to move up in national rankings and are listed among the best graduate and professional programs in the United States, according to U.S. News & World Report's 2015 edition of "Best Graduate Schools."
"Our goal is to advance the quality of the graduate education that we provide our students, and the rise in the rankings of several programs is a testament to the hard work of our faculty, staff and students," said Nancy Marcus, dean of The Graduate School. "These rankings reflect the continued enhancement of Florida State's academic reputation."
Florida State's College of Education was ranked 39th in the nation, up from No. 44 last year.
"Our continual upward movement in the rankings speaks to our commitment to providing our graduate students with excellent faculty, facilities and partnerships within our community," said Dean of the College of Education Marcy P. Driscoll. "This ranking reflects our increasing success in securing research grant funding, which is a heavily weighted component of the scoring. With more grant funding, we are also able to attract highly qualified doctoral students."
The College of Law was ranked 45th, up from No. 48 last year, and is now the highest ranked law school in the state. Its environmental law program is ranked the nation's 14th best.
