### UT-Austin’s Graduate School Programs Ranking by U.S. News

The University of Texas at Austin is once again making headlines for its academic achievements, this time focusing on its graduate programs.

U.S. News & World Report recently unveiled a portion of its rankings for the best graduate programs across colleges and universities nationwide. However, the rankings for engineering, medicine, and clinical psychology are yet to be disclosed.

UT’s graduate programs have secured positions among the top in the country, with the College of Education breaking into the top 10.

Three UT-Austin Programs Lead the Way

Three of UT’s graduate programs have clinched the top spot in the country within their respective categories. While only one ranking has been updated for the 2024-25 period, the university’s accounting program, Latin American history, and sociology of population programs have all claimed the first position, with the latter two yet to be revised for the current year.

“These rankings are remarkable and underscore our ongoing ability to attract outstanding faculty and students,” remarked Jay Hartzell, UT’s president, on Instagram. “Our exceptional talent propels UT to the forefront of groundbreaking research in AI, robotics, life sciences, population studies, and various other fields dedicated to addressing some of the world’s most critical challenges and advancing society.”
