Temple University shines in 2024 U.S. News & World Report’s graduate

Temple University celebrated impressive achievements in the newly released 2024 U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools rankings, showcasing notable advancements across multiple disciplines such as law and public health.

In particular, Temple’s Beasley School of Law secured an overall rank of No. 54 (of 196 schools), underscoring its commitment to excellence. The school’s trial advocacy program achieved a tie for the No.1 spot. At the same time, Beasley’s evening division, tailored to working professionals, soared to No. 4 among part-time programs, reflecting its dedication to accessibility and flexibility.

Temple Law School also distinguished itself in other specialized fields, securing spots among the top 20 in two key areas: health law (No. 15) and international law (No. 16). These rankings highlight Temple’s reputation as a leader in legal education, with faculty and alumni alike making significant contributions to these dynamic fields.

“I am consistently inspired by our faculty’s commitment to scholarship, teaching and service,” said Rachel Rebouché, dean of the Beasley School of Law, “but even more to our students’ success, both in law school and as they begin their careers. These rankings are a welcome recognition of those efforts and of the continued importance of access and excellence, both hallmarks of a Temple legal education.” 

Temple’s College of Public Health has risen to No. 29 among the nation’s graduate schools and programs of public health. The rise to No. 29 (of 213) from 36 continues the strides the college has made since its first U.S. News ranking in 2019.   

“This news reflects the growth that we continue to see across every facet of the college, from the diversity and excellence of our teaching staff to the translational impact of our research,” said Jennifer Ibrahim, dean of the College of Public Health. “It is a testament to the dedication of every member of our community—faculty, staff, researchers and alumni—and we look forward to the opportunities that await us with the opening of Paley Hall next year, when we can fully realize our potential as a truly interprofessional institution committed to advancing health for all.” 

Temple’s College of Education and Human Development ranked No. 48 (of 453) among the nation’s best graduate schools in that discipline, demonstrating the school’s commitment to preparing future educators.

“We are proud of our college’s ability to educate, prepare and support learners and leaders,” said Monika Williams Shealey, dean of the College of Education and Human Development. “Our national rankings reflect what we know about our work. Our research, teaching and service are rooted in achieving positive change in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and beyond.

“Our commitment to cultivating our ‘acres of diamonds’ is a common thread woven throughout our programs and offerings.”

Other Temple programs ranked in the top 50 nationally, including biostatistics, information systems, intellectual property law, legal writing, tax law,  occupational therapy, physical therapy, social work and speech-language pathology.

U.S. News has delayed the rankings for the 2024 Best Medical Schools, the 2024 Best Engineering Schools and the 2024 Best Clinical Psychology Programs due to additional ranking analysis required.
