SBU Graduate Programs Make 2014 U.S. News Rankings
Stony Brook University ranked among the top 100 graduate programs in the categories of Engineering, Fine Arts, Health, Science, and Social Sciences and Humanities in the U.S. News 2014 Best Graduate Schools rankings, which were released on March 12. Four programs — clinical psychology, math, physics and astronomy, and psychology — ranked in the top quarter of all graduate programs. Stony Brook University School of Medicine ranked 57th in the Best Research category. And Stony Brook was ranked the highest of only two SUNY institutions listed among the Top 400 World’s Best Universities.
“We are thrilled to see SUNY colleges and universities once again ranked among the best in the country by U.S. News & World Report,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “The SUNY campuses to make the 2014 Best Graduate Schools list are consistently recognized for the top quality and top value that they offer students, and rightly so. Congratulations to Stony Brook University and to President Samuel Stanley on this much deserved recognition.”
The U.S. News rankings evaluate programs in business, law, medicine, engineering and education, including specialties within each discipline. This year’s updated rankings also include graduate programs in the social sciences and humanities, and library and information studies.
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 at more than 1,250 programs and more than 13,000 academics and professionals, conducted during the fall of 2012 and early 2013. Ranking methodologies vary by discipline, but admissions selectivity and expert opinions on program quality are part of the equation for most programs.
