Truman Recognized by Washington Monthly

In the Washington Monthly September/October 2012 magazine, Truman State University is recognized as the No. 6 master’s university in the nation. Truman is the only Missouri school listed in the top 50, and the only public Missouri school on the entire Top 100 Master’s Universities list.

Washington Monthly bases its rankings on three criteria: social mobility, which gives colleges credit for enrolling low-income students and helping them earn degrees; research production, with particular emphasis on schools where undergraduates eventually earn Ph.D.s; and commitment to service.

In addition to the Washington Monthly, Truman recently was recognized by the Princeton Review and the Fiske Guide to Colleges. The Princeton Review’s publication “The Best 377 Colleges, 2013 Edition,” is based on student-conducted surveys. The “Fiske Guide to Colleges 2013” evaluates public and private colleges by cost and academics. Truman was on their list of 41 schools, 20 public and 21 private, as a best buy. Truman is the only Missouri school included on the Best Buy list.
