UCLA is the number 5 university in the subject of chemistry and number 8 overall in the inaugural U.S. News and World Report Rankings – Best Global Universities.

The inaugural U.S. News Best Global Universities rankings were produced to provide insight into how universities compare globally. As an increasing number of students are planning to enroll in universities outside of their own country, the Best Global Universities rankings – which focus specifically on schools’ academic research and reputation overall and not their separate undergraduate or graduate programs – can help those students accurately compare institutions around the world.

Facts Figures

The survey ranked 500 universities from 49 countries, using 10 weighted indicators to measure each university’s global research performance. UCLA Chemistry & Biochemistry ranked highly in several of these indicators, including the percentage of highly cited papers (No. 2), nomalized citation impact (No. 3), and global research reputation (No. 12).
