  1. Congratulations BU!! I’m in the School of Education online for my masters and super impressed with the entire experience. As a transfer from Online Masters in Education program at University of Houston which was ranked #1 a year ago, I am extremely skeptical about how UH is ranked at the top. BU rocks and I’m proud to be a part of this outstanding community of intellectuals!

  2. These are all great. BU School of Public Health wasn’t mentioned, because I don’t think its ranking has changed, but we are once again in the top 10 public health schools in the nation according to US News & World Report!

    1. You are correct; the original story did not mention SPH’s ranking because we saw no change. However, the story has been amended to include the ranking.

      1. I guess I am at a loss why SPH was not mentioned just because the rank did not change. With a top 10 ranking, that places SPH the highest rated of BU grad programs. Why not mention that? Why overlook it?

  3. Also excitingly BU School of Public Health is ranked number 10 – so we really have more than just those mentioned above ranking in the top 50!

  4. Plus, BU’s online graduate programs in Management, IT & Criminal Justice were all ranked in the top 10 this year- and have been since US News started ranking online programs.
