UC graduate schools highly ranked by U.S. News
UC graduate schools ranked among the nation’s top programs in a survey released on March 14 by U.S. News and World Report.
U.S. News’ 2018 Best Graduate Schools guide evaluates graduate schools for business, education, engineering, law, medicine and nursing and specialties within each area. In each discipline, all or nearly all UC graduate schools were ranked.
A few highlights:
- UC San Francisco’s School of Medicine ranked third in primary care and fourth in research — the only school in the country to rank in the top five for both categories.
- All of UC’s business, education, engineering and law schools were ranked, with UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and Information Studies moving up eight spots from the previous year to No. 3.
- UC had several No. 1-ranked graduate programs (some of which are not reviewed annually), including: chemistry (UC Berkeley), clinical psychology (UCLA), computer science (UC Berkeley), critical theory (UC Irvine), economics (UC Berkeley), English (UC Berkeley), nursing midwifery (UCSF), part-time MBA (UC Berkeley), psychology (UC Berkeley), sociology (UC Berkeley) and veterinary medicine (UC Davis).
The annual Best Graduate Schools rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty quality, research output and student achievement.
