TAMPA, Fla., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. News University Directory is proud to bring U.S. News & World Report's 2015 Best Graduate Schools to students, professionals and other education seekers who want to pursue an advanced degree.
The 2015 Best Graduate School rankings are available on USNews.com and USNewsUniversityDirectory.com. The "Best Graduate Schools 2015" guidebook will be on newsstands starting April 8, 2014.
"Getting the latest grad school rankings out to education seekers who want an advanced degree is something we consider critical," said Matthew Speer, Director of Sales and Marketing for U.S. News University Connection. "Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that professionals who hold a master's, doctoral or professional degree have the lowest unemployment rate and highest earning potential in the workforce. Attaining that level of education is clearly something we want to encourage."
Best Graduate Schools was first published in 1990 and has been the indispensable graduate school rankings resource ever since. This year's addition includes rankings for five of the largest professional graduate school disciplines – business, law, education, engineering, and medicine – as well as specialty rankings within each discipline.
As with previous editions, the 2015 Best Graduate Schools will include new rankings in all of these major categories. They are based on a combination of statistical data collected from each school, and the expert opinions of academics and professionals regarding the programs' quality.
Additionally, the edition will include new peer assessment-only rankings of a wide variety of engineering specialties: aerospace, aeronautical and astronautical engineering; biological and agricultural engineering; bioengineering and biomedical engineering; chemical engineering; civil engineering; computer engineering; electrical, electronic and communications engineering; environmental and environmental health engineering; industrial, manufacturing and systems engineering; materials engineering; mechanical engineering; and nuclear engineering.
U.S. News has updated the peer-assessment rankings of PhD programs in the sciences as well. This was last done in 2010, and now includes biological sciences, chemistry, computer science, earth sciences, mathematics, physics and statistics.
