CSUSB Psychology Department Ranks Third Nationally in Conferring Degrees to Hispanic Students

CSUSB Psychology Department Ranks Third Nationally in Conferring Degrees to Hispanic Students

The publication Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, in its annual rankings, has listed Cal State San Bernardino as one of the nation’s leading universities in awarding degrees to minority students, specifically Hispanics.
In awarding bachelor’s degrees, CSUSB was listed among the top 10 colleges and universities conferring degrees to Hispanics in the fields of psychology (third); liberal arts and sciences (fourth); physical sciences (fourth); business administration, management and operations (fifth); mathematics and statistics (sixth); family and consumer sciences/human sciences (eighth); parks, recreation, leisure and fitness studies (eighth); and history (ninth). CSUSB was also listed as 13th in all disciplines combined.
The Psychology Department conferred 376 B.A. degrees to Hispanic students in 2016-2017, an increase of 31% from the previous academic year (2015-2016).
CSUSB was also ranked eighth in conferring bachelor’s degrees in psychology in the total minority category, which consists of African-Americans, Native Americans, Asian/Pacific Islanders, Latinos, LGBT, military and women.
In conferring master’s degrees, CSUSB was ranked ninth in awarding degrees to African-Americans in English language and literature/letters, and 12th in awarding degrees to Hispanics in public administration and social service professions.
“The rankings reflect the dedicated efforts of our faculty, staff and administrators. Designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution and a Minority Serving Institution, we are committed to ensuring a quality education for our diverse communities as well as making sure our students successfully complete their studies and graduate,” said CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales. “It’s especially rewarding to be listed with these outstanding institutions because many of our students are the first in their families to be awarded college degrees.”
The rankings are based on an analysis of U.S. Department of Education reports submitted by the U.S. postsecondary institutions.
