Strong performances by multiple programs have led to Clarkson University once again being featured prominently in the 2022 edition of Best Graduate Schools by U.S. News & World Report.
Notably, Clarkson’s overall graduate engineering program jumped up nearly 20 spots from 2021 and is now ranked in the nation’s top 125. Civil and environmental engineering discipline-specific rankings were in the top 100 and top 50, respectively.
U.S. News & World Report, in its 2022 edition of the rankings “assesses multiple types of graduate programs, including the six disciplines with some of the largest enrollments: business, law, medicine, nursing, engineering and education.”
Information collected within the six major disciplines assesses how well universities prepare students for their professions, as well as the career or academic outcomes of its graduates, according to the publication.
“These rankings reflect Clarkson’s excellence across our graduate programs, further evidence of the strength of our faculty and students, and the impact of our research and our graduates,” said Provost Robyn Hannigan.
Clarkson’s COVID-19 response and emerging technology innovations that supported solutions have been nationally recognized during the pandemic.
Clarkson’s full-time MBA program once again is ranked in the top 125 in the nation. Now, all three MBA programs offered within the Reh School of Business (Fulltime, Online, and Healthcare Management) have been recognized as among the strongest in the nation.
Graduate education at Clarkson University provides a high degree of collaboration within its rigorous research and learning opportunities. Clarkson’s eight schools and institutes support professional masters and doctoral degrees in business, education, engineering, and the health sciences, as well as research-based masters and Ph.D. degrees in engineering, environmental sciences, the physical sciences, and life sciences.
Our industry-responsive professional programs offered online and hybrid supporting, offer dynamic face-to-face and virtual faculty-student interactions supporting real-time and self-directed collaborative learning. These programs leverage Clarkson's reputational leadership in technology-infused experiential learning to accelerate student success whether in distance or in-person classes.
In addition to becoming competitive members of the labor force, Clarkson’s graduate students contribute to advances in their fields, both within their disciplines and in interdisciplinary collaboration.
“Research shapes the future for us all,” noted Provost Hannigan. “At Clarkson, we offer degrees where masters and doctoral students not only create new knowledge but also solve problems and achieve their personal goals. For many students, completing the investigation of a meaningful theoretical or practical question is a lifelong ambition. Doing so with faculty mentorship, as part of a research group, creates a community of scholarship and support that persists well beyond the thesis or dissertation.”
