Ohio State University, Case Western Reserve University and the University of Cincinnati consistently ranked in the top 100 for graduate programs in the 2022 U.S. News & World Report rankings.
The publication, known for its consumer rankings of education programs, uses different methods to rank each area of graduate study. For example, this year, researchers brought in new data from the American Academy of Family Physicians for medical programs and added more debt indicators for law school. Breaking down the rankings individually allows researchers to explore the factors that matter for each area of study, though only some of the areas take into account affordability or debt incurred.
The business school rankings use student placement as a factor, but do not use student debt, but the law school rankings use average debt for a degree at graduation. Other rankings, like one set of nursing rankings, incorporate research activity into the rankings. Each student should review how the rankings were designed, by clicking “read methodology” at the top of the respective page.
The site also lists most recently recorded tuition for each program, but potential students should check in with schools to get the most up-to-date information, as well as most recent offerings for scholarships and part-time learning.
