WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Five master’s degree programs at the University of North Carolina Wilmington were listed in US News & World Report’s “2020 Best Graduate Schools.”
The schools of education, social work, nursing, public administration, and the part-time MBA program all made the magazine’s list. They were chosen from colleges and universities that are not exclusively online.
Criteria for the nursing, education and part-time MBA rankings were based on academic and institutional data submitted by the schools, as well as peer assessment. The public administration and social work programs were ranked based on peer assessment.
The nursing and public administration programs at UNCW each jumped 12 points on the U.S. News rankings from the previous year.
In 2019, UNCW had been ranked sixth among public universities in U.S. News’ “Best Regional Universities in the South” and ninth on the magazine’s “Best Colleges for Veterans” list.
