Industry publications give high marks to Mount St. Mary's

MONEY Magazine ranks the Mount No. 1 "Value-Added College" in the U.S., while film and nursing programs score additional Top 10 ratings

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- MONEY magazine has released its 2014 Best Colleges survey results, and Mount St. Mary's stands at the top of the publication's "Value All-Stars" list.

MONEY Magazine ranked Mount St. Mary's, in Los Angeles, as the No. 1 U.S. school on its list of “Colleges That Add the Most Value.”

MONEY, which is published by Time, Inc., officially rated Mount St. Mary's as the No. 1 U.S. school on its list of "Colleges That Add the Most Value." According to MONEY, Mount St. Mary's students are 23 percent more likely to graduate than others in their peer groups, and they out-earn their peers in the workforce by $13,930. The College helps "turn out graduates who exceed the averages for their peer groups by the widest margin," the magazine reported. 

The ranking takes into account the economic and academic profiles of incoming students, as well as the mix of majors and programs available at the school, and then calculates which schools help attendees succeed beyond what would be expected.

"This distinction is proof of the transformational power of a dynamic education led by a highly committed faculty and staff," says President Ann McElaney-Johnson. "We are extremely proud that more than 50 percent of our students are the first in their families to attend college. We are even prouder of all the incredible things that our alums are accomplishing once they leave the Mount."

Film and Nursing programs notch top honors
In the same week that MONEY Magazine ranked Mount St. Mary's College the No. 1 "Value-Added College" in the United States, two of the Mount's academic programs also received nationwide acclaim.

The Hollywood Reporter, one of the premiere insider publications covering the film industry, named Mount St. Mary's as one of "5 Schools to Watch" internationally for its "up-and-coming" BA and MFA film programs. In addition, Bright Hub, a publication that focuses on technology, science and education news, ranked the Mount No. 9 in its ranking of "10 Best Colleges for a Degree in Nursing."

The Hollywood Reporter noted the unique focus of the Mount's BA film program, with its unique focus on social justice and human interest storytelling. Its article also applauded the College's new MFA program for a structure that is geared toward working professionals.

Bright Hub, meanwhile, spotlighted the holistic Roy Adaptation Model used in the Mount's nursing program, which was pioneered by alum and former nursing chair Sister Callista Roy, CSJ, '63, and is widely used around the world.
