BETHLEHEM, PA, April 9, 2024: Today, Moravian University announced that U.S. News & World Report has included the Bethlehem school in its 2024 rankings for Best Graduate Schools. Designed for prospective students looking to advance their education post-college, the Best Graduate Schools rankings evaluate programs in a variety of disciplines, including business, education, law and nursing. The Best Graduate Schools rankings in these areas are based on two types of data: expert opinion about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students and their post-graduate outcomes.

“The faculty and staff responsible for all of our graduate programs have done a tremendous job designing effective curriculums that include impactful coursework and foster a culture of learning that prepares our students for post-graduate success,” said Bryon L. Grigsby, president of Moravian University. “These rankings are just one part of the story and seeing the graduates of these programs be successful in their respective fields has validated our continued investment in graduate programs.”

By collecting graduate school data annually, U.S. News is able to present the latest enrollment numbers, job placement rates, faculty statistics and other essential quality indicators that help prospective students make informed decisions.
