“Many students and working adults are seeking advanced degree programs that balance excellence with affordability. Often, a public grad school is the wisest choice,” says Dr. Jed Macosko, academic director of and professor of physics at Wake Forest University.

While some graduate programs offer tuition remission and stipends to students, many do not, especially in business, law, and medicine. Public universities still retain an advantage over private universities when the cost is an issue.

“But don’t let financial factors obscure the true value of a public grad school degree; alumni and faculty at the top-ranked public grad schools have had a major influence in a diverse spectrum of fields,” adds Macosko. “Students attending these schools receive a superior education and earn the credentials to make their impact on the world.”
