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

Tennessee State University

Nashville, TN

Tennessee State University says, "All bachelor’s degree programs at the University are designed to equip students to apply their learning to real opportunities, challenges, and needs. Recipients of the bachelor’s degree should have developed this ability throughout their course of study in service learning, internships, and other experiences of pre-professional and civic engagement. Both the design of these experiences and the work of the student should effectively demonstrate the application of the University’s other four baccalaureate outcomes in authentic and meaningful contexts beyond the classroom."
