U.S. News & World Report's 2018 edition of Best Graduate Schools, released Tuesday, includes three UMass Boston graduate programs.

• Master of Nursing – No. 59
• Doctor of Nursing Practice – No. 62
• Graduate programs in education – No. 74

Rankings are based on student acceptance rate, program size, number and strength of faculty, and research activity.

"The faculty and staff of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences are pleased that we continue to rank among the top 100 master’s and doctor of nursing practice programs," said Marion Winfrey, interim dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. "As Boston’s only public baccalaureate and higher degree nursing college, we have an obligation to provide the finest possible education to our students, and thereby positively affect the health of the city."

"The College of Education and Human Development has many reasons to be proud," said Felicia Wilczenski, interim dean of the College of Education and Human Development. "Our doctoral programs in counseling psychology and school psychology were recently accredited by the American Psychological Association. The teacher education programs also received national recognition and approval by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC). It is an honor to work with the talented and dedicated faculty and staff of CEHD and I am delighted that U.S. News & World Report is acknowledging our accomplishments."
