UTC among America's best colleges
For the second consecutive year, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has ranked 40th among colleges in the South that offer primarily master's degrees as their highest degree, according to the 2007 edition of U.S. News and World Report's annual America’s Best Colleges guide.
The rankings distinguish between campuses such as UTC-which now offers three doctoral programs—and major research universities offering multiple doctorates.
"It is the outstanding work of faculty and staff and the tremendous support from the Chattanooga community, alumni and friends that has brought this distinction to the campus," said UTC Chancellor Roger Brown.
U.S. News and World Report publishes the annual guide of colleges that ranks colleges in a variety of categories and considers criteria such as graduation rates, faculty to student ratios, alumni giving, and academic reputation.
"I am proud that UTC continues to achieve in academic quality and reputation, and in retaining desirable class size," said Dr. Brown.
