TTUHSC Places First in National Rankings for Graduate Programs

TTUHSCTexas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) ranked first nationally in the 2016 Top Graduate Schools by SR Education Group. The 2016 Top Graduate Schools were released on GraduatePrograms.com.

 

According to GraduatePrograms.com, 18 ranking categories were listed for graduate programs at each university. Rankings cover a variety of student topics, such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid and quality of network.

 

TTUHSC President Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D., said this ranking is unique because it is based on student reviews.

 

“These rankings are by the students and for the students,” Mitchell said. “One hundred percent of the information is from the students without university input. Other rankings may adjust the outcome because of university input. These rankings demonstrate the quality of education our students are receiving here. We are extremely proud of this.”

 

Feedback on over 1,700 schools was collected, and the lists reflect the top institutions students are most satisfied with. This list covers a wide range of schools, many of which offer specialized degree tracks or online graduate degrees.

 

Together with the internal recommended rate data, which is calculated based on tens of thousands of student reviews submitted to the site, the data used in the school listings were gathered in 2015-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). This site is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. NCES data is updated annually.
