The yearly professional school (nonspecialty) rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students. The data come from surveys of administrators in relevant fields conducted during the fall of 2017 and early 2018.

U.S. News also periodically ranks programs in the arts, sciences, social sciences, humanities, and health. The specialty rankings are based solely on nominations by deans and deans of graduate studies, who were asked to choose up to 10 programs of excellence in each specialty.

Below are all UI graduate schools, specialties, and programs, beginning with the highest-ranked programs. The UI offers 151 graduate degree and professional degree programs.
