UCCS places 10 graduate programs among nation’s best in latest U.S. News & World Report rankings


Ten graduate programs earned “Best Programs” distinction, led by a No. 14 ranking in homeland security, in the 2021 U.S. News & World Report graduate rankings.

“Although rankings are not the only indicator of the success of our graduate programs, I view these as an external recognition of our programs’ excellence, the growing impact of our faculty’s research and the quality of our students,” said Kelli Klebe, dean of the graduate school and professor of psychology.

The graduate certificate in homeland security and emergency management leadership is one of six ranked programs west of the Mississippi. It’s designed for law enforcement, public safety and emergency first responders, as well as military personnel potentially interested in civilian security careers. It can be completed online, in a hybrid format or in person.
