UW Madison graduate programs are again named among the best in the country in the 2022 edition of US News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools.
“Our doctoral students are an essential part of our university,” says Provost John Karl Scholz. “These rankings are an example of the world-class education, research, and outreach that takes place here every day.”
One of the highlights is that the School of Education is ranked fourth nationwide for the second year in a row. It was also the second highest public university. The history of the College of Letters & Science ranked 11th and two subspecialties were recognized: African history ranked first and women’s history ranked second.
“This recognition is a testament to our outstanding faculties and staff who continue to build on our rich history of higher education and research in a variety of disciplines,” said William Karpus, dean of UW-Madison Graduate School. “We pride ourselves on the commitment of our students to deepen their knowledge and achievements that benefit the citizens of our state, country and our world.”
