Each year, U.S. News measures the quality of professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law, medicine, and nursing to assist prospective students in comparing programs. Rankings are based on statistical surveys of more than 2,125 programs, and from reputational surveys sent to more than 23,000 academics and professionals in fall 2020 and early 2021.

Statistical indicators measured quality of a schools’ faculty, research, and students. Also considered are graduates’ achievements linked to their degrees, such as starting salaries and how quickly they found employment in their chosen field.

Peer assessment data about the academic quality of programs came from deans, program directors, and senior faculty. U.S. News also surveyed professionals who hire or work with new graduates in the education, engineering, law, nursing, and medical fields.
