Highlights of the rankings will be published in the America’s Best Graduate Schools 2018guidebook, which goes on sale April 5. A paid subscription is required to access all of the data.

The yearly professional school (non-specialty) rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students. The data come from surveys of administrators in the respective field conducted during the fall of 2016 and early 2017.

U.S. News also periodically ranks programs in the arts, sciences, social sciences, humanities, and health. The specialty rankings are based solely on nominations by deans and deans of graduate studies, who were asked to choose up to 10 programs of excellence in each specialty.
