The Hispanic Outlook on Education Magazine recently released its annual Top 100 Colleges and Universities for Hispanics' issue, and The University of New Mexico is well represented.

Every year, the magazine puts together the lists to chart the national progress of Hispanics in higher education and to recognize the institutions that are committed to serving Hispanics' educational needs. The University of New Mexico - Main Campus ranked in the following categories:

  • Top 100 (2019 Grand total Bachelor's degree) – #26
  • Top 100 (2019 Grand total Master's degree) – #35
  • Top 100 (Total Enrollment 4 Year Schools 2018 – 2019) – #31

Top 10 (2019 Degrees by Major)

  1. 2019 Architecture and Related Services Degrees – #5 (S)
  2. 2019 English Language and Literature/Letters Degrees – #9 (S)

The University of New Mexico is classified as a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), one of only nine Research I HSI universities in the country. When Hispanic Outlook was established 30 years ago, Hispanics were just beginning to make their presence known in large numbers on college campuses. Now, according to the U.S. Department of Education, 47.3 percent of the full-time equivalent undergraduate students are Hispanic (Fall 2017).

Lists are compiled from the Department of Education’s database of completed higher education surveys from all 50 states.
