Humboldt State University is among the top master’s degree-granting institutions in the nation, according to Washington Monthly’s 2019 College Rankings.
Of the 606 institutions surveyed, the University ranked #59. HSU has made the list several times in the last few years since Washington Monthly began ranking four-year colleges in 2005.
Washington Monthly has ranked colleges based on their contributions to society. According to editors of the nonprofit magazine, “We rank master’s universities—four-year institutions that award a significant number of master’s degrees but few or no doctoral degrees—based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility, research, and promoting public service.”
HSU was also named #81 in the Sierra Club magazine’s annual list of eco-savvy colleges. Earning top marks in curriculum and waste management, the University is among 282 best Cool Schools for sustainability and environmental conservation.
