Top rated graduate programs at UC Berkeley

Sure, rankings aren’t everything, but I don’t think it hurts to be proud of the accomplishments of our graduate advisors, graduate students, and the ground-breaking research they’re conducting.

Today U.S. News Rankings and Reviews released new annual rankings for Business, Law, Engineering, Medical and Education graduate schools, so I was curious about the rankings of Science programs. Curiously, they only “periodically” rank programs in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, and the health arena. So, although the results are from 2010, we can appreciate them anyway. US News ranks the following UC Berkeley graduate programs in the top five in the country:
– Biology
– Chemistry
– Computer Science
– Earth Sciences
– Math
– Physics
– Statistics

Let’s keep up the good work!

  1. You might also note that in the latest ranking Berkeley is ranked #1 in Ecology and Evolution while our friends down in the industrial areas of the South Bay, not surprisingly, only are ranked 5th. More embarrassingly, we are only ranked 4th in Genetics/Genomics/Bioinformatics. Clearly the MCB department really has to shape up. We might ask our dean to look at why a department such as IB has succeeded to make it to the top of the rankings while MCB fails so miserably 😉 .
