Graduate Program | NRC Rankings
National Research Council’s report Assessment of Research-Doctorate Programs, released in September 2010, provides a range of rankings for doctoral programs. Our doctoral program was ranked among the top 10 communications programs in almost any comprehensive analysis of the rankings and data provided in the report. In the two rankings for overall quality of program we ranked 8th on both. On specific dimensions, we had the 8th highest publications per faculty, 9th highest citations per publication, and the highest percentage of international students.
Rankings by a body like the National Research Council are noteworthy and we take great pride in its recognition of the quality of our program.
