Berkeley Public Health No. 8 in U.S. News Rankings

Biostatistics PhD program ranked No. 7

The UC Berkeley School of Public Health has once again excelled in school rankings released today by U.S. News & World Report, placing it as the No. 8 out of 190 Master of Public Health programs in the U.S. accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health. Berkeley Public Health was tied for No. 8 in 2021, moving up from the No. 9 spot in 2019.

Berkeley Public Health’s Biostatistics PhD program was ranked No. 7, tied with Columbia University.

The rankings are based on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to deans, other administrators, or faculty at accredited degree programs or schools.

“I’m pleased to see that we are, once again, ranked among the top schools of public health,” said Dean Michael C. Lu. “But ultimately, I believe the true greatness of our school is measured not by our ranking or the size of our endowment, but by our impact—the difference we make in the world—through the research we do and the students we educate and the societal change we help bring about. The ranking is great, but we’ve got our eyes on the prize.”

UC Berkeley and its graduate programs have consistently scored in the Top Ten in the U.S. News rankings, and this year’s rankings are no different:

  • No. 3 College of Engineering
  • No. 3 Goldman School of Public Policy
  • No. 5 School of Social Welfare
  • No. 8 Haas School of Business
  • No. 9 Berkeley Law

Congratulations and thank you to all our faculty, students, researchers, and staff who collaborate everyday to make Berkeley Public Health a world-class institution.
