In the latest rankings of the best graduate schools in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, the Colorado School of Public Health is ranked No. 23 in the nation, along with nine others, out of 177 Master of Public Health schools and programs accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.
The ColoradoSPH consists of three partner institutions: Colorado State University, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the University of Northern Colorado.
ColoradoSPH moved up eight places from its previous position of No. 31 out of 50 schools, which were last ranked in 2015 based on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators and faculty of accredited public health degree programs or schools. U.S. News ranks graduate programs in public health every five years.
The school, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2018, is now ranked in the top 25 of all schools in the country offering a Master of Public Health, and accomplished this within its first decade.
“I am delighted by this new ranking,” said ColoradoSPH Dean Jonathan Samet. “We will continue to move up as we develop new programs and advance our research.”
