  • Mar 29, 2022

The University of Texas at Austin remains among the top public universities in the country, according to the U.S. News & World Report’s latest rankings of the “Best Graduate Schools.”  

Fifty-five of the university’s graduate programs and specialties landed in the top 10 in the nation, making it only the fourth public university in the country with 50 or more specialties to reach this mark. 

The five graduate colleges that ranked in the top 10 include: the Cockrell School of Engineering (No. 6), the LBJ School of Public Affairs (No. 10), the Steve Hicks School of Social Work (No. 7), the Jackson School of Geosciences (No. 6, ranked under Earth sciences) and the School of Information (No. 5, ranked under library and information sciences).  

UT Austin also has five specialties that took the No. 1 spot in the nation: accounting in the McCombs School of Business, petroleum engineering in the Cockrell School of Engineering, geology in the Jackson School of Geosciences, along with Latin American history and sociology of population, both of which are in the College of Liberal Arts.  

“With strength in so many disciplines, UT Austin is without a doubt one of the best places in the world to pursue graduate studies,” said President Jay Hartzell. “Few institutions can match our combination of excellence and breadth, and we are especially strong in some of the fastest-growing fields that draw from multiple disciplines, where scholars are tackling society’s biggest challenges, expanding the frontiers of knowledge, and making an impact.”
