U.S. News first ranked graduate program in 1987 and has done so annually since 1990. Business, education, engineering, law and medicine are ranked annually. 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 magazine officials. Other disciplines and specialties in the sciences, social sciences, humanities and other areas, including selected health specialists, are ranked periodically. Those rankings are based only on the ratings of academic experts.
