“The connections you can make in Boston, as well as the opportunities in the surrounding areas here, are second to none in the media industry. Being at Curry, there are so many different ways to get your foot in the door early, at places like NESN, The Boston Globe and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and Revolution.”

Curry Ranked in U.S. News & World Report's 2011 Edition of Best Colleges
March 1, 2011
Curry College has been recognized and ranked among the nation's best colleges and universities, according to U.S. News & World Report's 2011 edition of Best Colleges. The national publication ranked Curry #29 (tied for #29 with St. Francis College in NY) in the top tier of the Best Regional Colleges in the North.
The 2011 edition included rankings of more than 1,400 schools nationwide. Over the past two decades, the U.S. News college rankings, which group schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, has grown to be a widely-used research tool for students and parents considering higher education opportunities.
The U.S. News rankings compare schools on a set of up to 16 widely accepted indicators of excellence. Among the many factors weighed in determining the rankings, the key measures of quality are: peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, and alumni giving.
