In U.S. News & World Report’s recently released 2024 Best Graduate Schools list, Adelphi’s programs in nursing, public health, audiology and social work all made ranking jumps.

“We’re very proud of Adelphi University’s growing reputation for offering graduate students high-quality academic and professional programs,” said Christopher Storm, PhD, Adelphi’s provost and executive vice president. “This is a meaningful recognition of the value and strength of a higher degree from Adelphi.”

Here is a summary of Adelphi’s rankings for 2024:

  • The College of Nursing and Public Health master’s in nursing programs were ranked No. 92 in the nation, surging 21 points over last year, and its Master of Public Health is now ranked No. 201.
  • The School of Social Work’s graduate programs were ranked No. 67 overall in the United States, a five-point jump versus last year.
  • The master’s in audiology—a consortium program delivered by Adelphi, Hofstra University and St. John’s University—ranked No. 50 this year, improving 19 spots from 69 in 2020, the last time U.S. News published an audiology ranking.
  • The Robert B. Willumstad School of Business is included in the U.S. News ranking of Best Graduate Business Part-Time Programs, in the 244–269 range.

U.S. News & World Report’s rankings for programs in nursing and business are based on two types of data: expert opinions about the programs’ excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students and their postgraduate outcomes. Data for these rankings came from statistical and reputation surveys conducted in Fall 2023 and early 2024. The other rankings for Adelphi’s graduate programs are 100 percent based on peer assessment scores.
