Tenth in the nation for Hispanics in agriculture, nineteenth in doctoral degrees awarded

National magazine The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education released its annual lists of the top colleges and universities for Hispanics in their May 4, 2009 issue, and Texas A&M University-Kingsville saw itself featured prominently throughout.

           
Using July 1, 2007 through June 30, 2008 data from the U.S. Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System program, the magazine issued their lists of the Top 100 Institutions for Hispanics based on bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees awarded.

In addition, the magazine included lists of the top ten schools for bachelor’s degrees by academic programs and top ten first professional degrees by academic programs list.

Texas A&M-Kingsville rankings appeared in the following categories:
           
Bachelor’s degrees awarded—40th; in specific academic programs for bachelor’s degrees, A&M-Kingsville ranks 10th in agriculture
                 
Master’s degrees awarded—41st

Doctoral degrees awarded—19th            
           
“I think rankings like this serve as affirmations of what Texas A&M-Kingsville is accomplishing,” said Dr. Steven H. Tallant, president of Texas A&M-Kingsville.

“I’m very happy to see us featured multiple times, not to mention being among the top twenty schools awarding doctoral degrees and the top ten in agriculture. Hard working students and dedicated faculty and staff make milestones like this possible.

“With their continued efforts, Texas A&M-Kingsville will keep making a difference that is recognized not just in Texas, but nationally, as we were in this instance by The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education,” said Tallant.

The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education is published 25 times a year.  It describes itself as the sole Hispanic educational magazine for the higher education community, and those involved in running institutions of higher learning.
