Recently, Sacred Heart was added to a new Carnegie Classification professional practice doctoral category. In making its rankings, U.S.News strictly maps its categories to the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education’s Basic Classification system, the accepted standard in U.S. higher education. Previously, the University was ranked in U.S.News’ master’s regional north category.
“We are excited by the challenges of being included in this new company of national universities” said SHU President John J. Petillo. “As part of our goals and aspirations of becoming a nationally recognized university known for excellence and the relevance of its curriculum, we have been investing strategically in graduate and doctoral programs over the past several years. We are pleased that U.S.News took notice of what we are doing and promoted us to a national classification. This recognition is a testament to the educational excellence and successful outcomes we provide to our students through our rigorous and demanding curricula.”
Sacred Heart offers doctorate degrees in physical therapy and nursing practice, as well as its doctor of business administration in finance. This fall, the University added a doctorate in educational leadership. Over the past decade, Sacred Heart has tripled the number of graduate programs it offers.
Sacred Heart’s Jack Welch College of Business & Technology was also named one of the best undergraduate business schools by U.S.News & World Report. These rankings are based solely on the judgements of deans and senior faculty members at peer institutions. According to U.S News & World Report, in the spring they surveyed the administrators at each of the 504 undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
