Graduate schools ranked

U.S. News & World Report magazine ranked top graduate and professional schools in its April 10 issue, rating programs in law, business, medicine, education and engineering. Nursing and several allied health fields were also surveyed this year.

The Darden Graduate School of Business Administration held its previous ranking at No. 11, tied with Dartmouth and UCLA. The Law School, at No. 7 last year, tied for 8th with the University of California-Berkeley.

The Curry School of Education slipped from 13th to 19th, but several of its departments continue to be rated in the top 10.

Graduate nursing tied for No. 21 with Columbia, NYU, Ohio State, Alabama and Wisconsin, moving up from 24th the last time nursing programs were ranked, in 1998.

The Medical School, 28th last year, placed 30th and the Engineering School, 35th last year, tied for No. 36 with the University of California-Davis.

Other programs within the schools and ranked individually are included here.

U.S. News ranks business, education, engineering, law and medicine schools every year, but not all graduate schools and Ph.D. programs. Its separate annual guidebook lists all Ph.D. programs in the arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences, and the years when they were last ranked.
