Graduate programs rate high marks

Four UD graduate programs-in the areas of chemical engineering, city management/ urban policy, physical therapy and drama-are ranked among the nation's top 10 such programs in a report released Feb. 23 by U.S. News & World Report magazine.

In addition, UD made the magazine's list of America's top 50 graduate programs in the areas of public management/administration and engineering.

Listed among the magazine's top-100 in their respective disciplines are another nine UD graduate programs covering: public affairs; history; computer science; chemistry; psychology; physics; music; business and economics; fine arts; and nursing.

"The rankings of graduate programs affirm that the good work of UD's faculty is becoming more widely known and more highly respected. This recognition is well deserved and, given the very high quality of our recent additions to the faculty, there is every reason to believe that this momentum will continue and numerous programs offered at the University of Delaware will take a place in the first rank," President David P. Roselle said.
