WASHINGTON, March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in education rankings, today published the 2022 Best Graduate Schools. The rankings evaluate programs across a number of disciplines – including business, education, engineering, law, medicine and nursing – for students interested in furthering their education beyond college.

New in this edition:

  • U.S. News added several standalone medical school rankings, using data from the Robert Graham Center, a division of the American Academy of Family Physicians. These rankings display data on various practice areas of alumni – specifically, the percentage of graduates practicing in primary care specialties, rural areas and medically underserved areas.
  • Two new student debt indicators were added to the overall Best Law Schools methodology: The average law school debt incurred by law school graduates and the percentage of law graduates who incurred debt.

«Trying to decide where to go to grad school can be overwhelming under normal circumstances, let alone during a pandemic,» said Anita Narayan, managing editor of Education at U.S. News. «Along with our articles featuring expert advice on the admissions process, the Best Graduate Schools rankings provide helpful data to make that search more manageable for prospective students.»
