On March 12, U.S. News & World Report released the 2020 Best Graduate Schools rankings, which included new rankings for the School of Social Work and Doctor of Nursing Practice and, for the first time in its history, a national ranking for the College of Public Health.
In its inaugural ranking, the college is 46 among the nation’s 177 schools and programs of public health, placing it in the 26th percentile.
In addition, the School of Social Work is ranked 59 among 262 social work programs, and the Doctor of Nursing Practice is 72 of 182 such programs. These programs join the college’s previously ranked programs in Speech-Language-Hearing (30 of 249), Occupational Therapy (32 of 164), and Physical Therapy (53 of 217).
This is the first time the College of Public Health has been placed on the organization’s rankings, which are evaluated every four years. The ranking follows the college’s recognition as an accredited college of public health by the Council on Education for Public Health.
