Several Drexel schools, colleges and programs made gains in the 2020 U.S. News & World Report “Best Graduate Schools” rankings released in March.

The rankings, which use both data and reputational surveys, recognized institutions’ online, fulltime and part-time graduate school offerings in areas like business, law, education, health specialties and nursing.

Notably, the Kline School of Law moved into the Top 100 of the country’s best law schools; the Dornsife School of Public Health ranked at No. 19 among 118 nationally ranked schools and programs of public health; and Drexel’s online graduate program in education, which is offered through the School of Education and Drexel University Online, jumped 30 spots to rank at No. 54.

“The improved rankings recognize that graduatelevel education and scholarship at Drexel is of the highest quality and that Drexel continues to innovate by providing unique programmatic offerings that meet market needs.” – Elisabeth Van Bockstaele, senior vice president of online and graduate education and dean of the Graduate College.
