Best Schools by Major?

Postby brandnew » Tue Sep 12, 2006 12:10 am

I'm in the process of looking at/applying to schools, and I'm trying to narrow down a list to consider... I've been looking to find some sort of guide that can help me out with sorting the best schools by specific major. I'm looking for the best marketing schools in the nation, I know Texas is up there as one of the best, but I'm not really sure of much else. My search so far has not gotten any results. Can anyone help me out with this?

For broadcast journalism, you got BU, Syracuse, and if you're out west, USC.

Northwestern and its MeDill school may be the best in print journalism, though I know Syracuse and BU are pretty good in that department as well.

It's impossible to tell; there are too many universities. You have the Ivy League and the Ivy League-esque which are super expensive and difficult to get into. Then you have really huge private schools that cost a fortune and then really small private schools that even more expensive. Then you have huge public universities like Penn State and Michigan that are a toss up sometimes education wise. Then you have the cheap public schools, small, medium and large that are questionable but sometimes a good value for class size, then you have the state schools which are even cheaper, and sometimes only have one decent program, if that...

See, it's impossible.

The best journalism schools are Columbia and Northwestern.


Syracuse is the best broadcast journalism school. BU is also considered very good.

You also should consider that your undergrade doesn't matter as much these days as it used to. If you want to get ahead in life you need a grad degree from a good school (especially if you want to go into marketing).

I'd recommend checking out some ranking magazines like Newsweek or Princeton Review.

True, and I hate it. Walking around with a BA is nearly worthless to me. It's either back to school or NYPD/FDNY and I'm heavily leaning towards the latter. But, as the dude said, grad schools mean a lot these days, more than undergrad...

yup all very true...thats why a very good strategy is going to a cheap inexpensive state school first and then go to a solid university after. doesnt make much sense to get yourself in excess of 100,000 in debt and then it doesnt matter anymore.
