A guide to what college rankings don't tell you.

Tennessee State University

Nashville, TN

Tennessee State University says, 'Academic departments with their programs of majors and minors are primarily responsible for developing the highly detailed and specialized skills and knowledge called for in today's world. The general education program fosters those competencies and attitudes which are necessary to the highly educated individual regardless of his or her profession. The general education program, therefore, is not the province of an individual department or college, but is the responsibility of the University as a whole.' [Source]
