Earlier this month the Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education magazine published their Top 100 Colleges and Universities for Hispanics ranking. California State University, San Bernardino ranked 20th in bachelor’s degrees granted to Latinx students and 8th in awarding English language and literature/letters degrees.
Each year, Hispanic Outlook on Education features the top 100 institutions that are committed to serving Hispanics’ educational needs. The lists are compiled from the U.S. Department of Education’s database of completed higher education surveys from all 50 states.
The survey also found the following trends for Hispanics/Latinos in higher education:
- Enrollment at 4-year schools was higher than enrollment at 2-year schools.
- A large proportion of Hispanic/Latino students are concentrated in a fairly small number of institutions.
- Hispanic/Latino enrollment numbers overall, for both 2-year and 4-year schools, are lower than they were in the 2020-21 academic year
- At most of the 2- and 4-year institutions listed, there were more Hispanic/Latino women than men enrolled.
- The greatest proportion of top Hispanic/Latino-enrolling 2- and 4-year institutions were in California and Texas.
- Graduate degrees for Hispanic/Latino students are still lagging far behind associate degrees and bachelor’s degrees.
- The greatest number of degrees conferred to Hispanic/Latino students were in the field of Liberal Arts and Sciences/General Studies and Humanities, followed by Business, Marketing, Management and Related Support Services. In contrast, the smallest number of degrees were obtained by Hispanic/Latino students in the field of Philosophy and Religious Studies.
The Hispanic Outlook on Education magazine is the sole Hispanic educational magazine for the higher education community, publishing since 1990.
