New rankings will appear in the April 7 issue of U.S. News and World Report magazine, which hit newsstands Monday, March 31 and in “America’s Best Graduate Schools” guidebook, available Tuesday, April 1. Details are available at www.usnews.com.
U.S. News first ranked graduate programs 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 specialties, are ranked periodically. Those rankings are based on the ratings of academic experts.
Notable UNC programs that retain rankings from previous years include the School of Information and Library Science, which was tied for first among programs with accredited master’s degrees when it was last ranked in 2006 and the Schools of Nursing and Public Health, which were fifth and 12th respectively when they were last ranked in 2007.
