As U.S. News does not release new rankings for every program, every year, rankings denoted with an asterisk have been republished this year. U.S News also announced that medical school rankings will be released at a later date.  

According to U.S. News, rankings are generated through 鈥渞anking indicators鈥 derived from reputation and/or data reported by each institution.  For some programs, U.S. News evaluates key areas such as expert opinions in the field, opportunities for student engagement, resources for student support and career success, as well as faculty and student performance, in terms of existing credentials, research impact and metrics such as student job placement.

In addition to the graduate program rankings, in September U.S. News ranked USF No. 42 among public institutions on its annual list of best universities in the nation.  It鈥檚 the highest ranking ever for USF and the fourth consecutive year the university has been inside the top 50.
