UNC continues to post high rankings in public health, medicine, nursing, business and chemistry in U.S. News & World Report‘s assessments of U.S. graduate schools.
U.S. News first ranked graduate programs in 1987, and business, education, engineering, law and medicine have been ranked annually since 1990. Those rankings are based on expert opinion about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students, according to the magazine. Other disciplines and specialties in the sciences, social sciences, humanities and other areas, including selected health specialties, are ranked less frequently. Those rankings are based on the ratings of academic experts.
The following programs are newly ranked by the magazine:
School of Public Health
Health care management
School of Medicine
Nursing (master’s programs)
Nursing service administration
Kenan-Flagler Business School
School of Education
College of Arts and Sciences
Sciences Doctoral Programs
School of Law
New rankings will appear in the April 9 issue of U.S. News & World Report magazine and the magazine’s “America’s Best Graduate Schools” guidebook.
Carolina has had a number of programs ranked in the periodic rankings that were not reviewed this year. Those include the School of Information and Library Science, overall, tied for first (among programs with accredited master’s degrees), ranked in 2006; and public administration: city management and urban policy, ranked sixth in 2004.
