Temple programs made some significant leaps in the most recent U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools rankings.
Temple graduate programs made a strong showing in the latest U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools rankings, recording increases on eight lists in disciplines including law, math, medicine and social work, among others.
The most dramatic increase for a Temple program in this year’s rankings, the 2019 edition, was earned by the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, which moved up 15 spots since last year, from No. 84 to No. 69 on the Best Medical Schools: Primary Care list. Temple’s medical school once again ranked on the top half of the list of best schools for research. 
Temple’s Beasley School of Law, another school that has ascended in recent years, leapt six spots overall this year to No. 47, with its trial advocacy program remaining ranked No. 2 and its part-time law program remaining ranked No. 6 in the nation. 
College of Science and Technology programs also made significant gains in the latest rankings, with mathematics jumping 13 spots since it was last ranked in 2015. Computer science and physics also ascended on their lists by 10 and three spots, respectively.
Temple’s College of Education, which jumped seven spots in last year’s rankings, held strong, remaining in the top 20 percent of graduate schools of education.
Temple’s College of Engineering and College of Public Health also made gains, with electrical engineering ascending seven spots since last year and social work leaping five spots since it was last ranked in the 2016 edition.
Other Temple programs ranked in the top 100 nationally, including bioengineering, computer engineering, health care law and international law. 
U.S. News does not rank all programs on its Best Graduate Schools list every year. The 2019 edition left out some programs that are traditionally areas of strength for Temple, including fine arts and some public health programs.
