City University Leading Producer of Hispanic Graduates

The magazine Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education has ranked the University as the state’s leader for Hispanic students receiving doctoral, master’s, and bachelor’s degrees.

The Hispanic Outlook reported in May that CUNY leads all New York State institutions of higher learning, both public and private, with 2,084 Hispanic students receiving bachelor’s degrees, according to an analysis of U. S. Department of Education data for the 1999-2000 academic year, the most recent year available.

The magazine also found high rankings among specific CUNY undergraduate programs. John Jay College of Criminal Justice ranks first in the nation for Hispanics who receive degrees in protective services. The School of Architecture at City College is ranked third in the nation for degrees issued to Hispanic students, and Baruch College is ranked fifth for Hispanic business and marketing degree earners. Both Baruch and Lehman Colleges are among the top five in the nation in computer science degrees awarded to Hispanic students.

The Hispanic Outlook also reported that the 516 master’s degrees conferred on Hispanic students ranked CUNY among the top five universities in the nation. The CUNY Graduate Center ranks first in the state and fourth in the northeast after Harvard University, Penn State, and the University of Maryland for doctorates earned by Hispanics..
