USN&WR: SOLES Ranks Among Nation's Best in Graduate Education Schools

UCSF School of Medicine students Mengya Wu and Manuel Gonzalez talk in the UCSF library

The UW's College of Engineering ranked 25th in the nation, and Washington State University's program ranked 81st.

The College of Law is now 31st among public institutions, up five spots from a year ago. Several specialty programs in the School of Medicine were also ranked: Internal Medicine (fifth); Geriatrics (tied for fifth); Family Medicine (ninth). Among the specialty categories, UM notably finished No. 5 in accounting and marketing, no. 6 in executive MBA program and part-time MBA program and No. 9 in finance. U-M's program ranked No. 15 in the nation.

"Having strong graduate programs is key to our success as a top research university", UT Chancellor Beverly Davenport said in a news release.

For its 2018 Best Graduate Schools Rankings, released today, U.S. News analyzed almost 2,000 graduate and specialty programs in a wide range of disciplines. The rankings for these schools and programs are updated every three years, not annually.

A list of Penn State's graduate school rankings, including health disciplines and science specialties ranked in previous years, is available on the U.S. News' website.

"I am thrilled to see that our continued commitment to multiculturalism and social justice combined with our commitment to strengthen, develop, and grow our academic programs in SOLES has been reflected in our ranking". "Our faculty have worked hard over the past few years to expand the range of our graduate offerings and to attract the very best graduate students to our program".

The law school rankings were released as law schools across the nation are struggling with declining numbers of people who want to be lawyers.

Many specialties did not receive new rankings this year. "Our graduates and their employers regularly affirm the enormous value of our MBA program and the significant impact that it has on their careers". They include average admissions test scores, higher education reputation surveys, student-faculty ratios, starting salaries, professional certification exam scores and job placement statistics. In the law specialties rankings, Baylor's trial advocacy program also moved up to No. 3 in the nation.

"This is an extraordinary per-faculty figure [$650,000], considering the relatively small size of our engineering college, and the individualized experience and attention our students enjoy from just over 100 engineering faculty", said Associate Dean for Research Sonia Kreidenweis.

U.S. News also published new rankings based on peer assessment only for graduate areas in social sciences, humanities, and library and information studies, which were last ranked in 2014.
