U.S. News rankings show UCLA’s graduate programs are among best in the country.

UCLA Newsroom (By Rebecca Kendall): More than two dozen UCLA professional schools and graduate programs have been ranked among the best in the nation in U.S. News and World Report’s annual survey.

UCLA’s impressive showing in the rankings, released online March 11, is a testament to the campus’s broad academic excellence and reinforces its reputation as one of the country’s finest institutions of higher learning.

Last September, U.S. News’ Best Colleges rankings placed UCLA second among public universities in the nation and 23rd overall. UCLA consistently performs well in multiple rankings that use a wide range of criteria.

The newly released graduate program rankings, which will be published in print in the Best Graduate Schools 2015 guidebook on April 8, are based on experts’ opinions about program excellence and on statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students. The data come from surveys of administrators at more than 1,350 programs and over 13,500 academics and professionals conducted during fall 2013 and early 2014.
