The best grad schools 2018, from \'U.S. News & World Report\'

Graduate school is a great space to further bury yourself in academic books, write up thesis papers and follow a career path. But, where to go?

U.S. News World & Report’s 2018 Best Graduate Schools Rankings is your resource for finding the #BestGradSchools to tackle your future.

Advanced academic studies can help boost a career salary, build needed skills, or even change a career.

“A graduate degree can lead to professional advancement and a potential salary increase,” Anita Narayan, managing editor of education at U.S. News, said in a statement. “Whether you are interested in pursuing a full-time program or taking classes part-time, the grad school rankings and advice offer guidance on finding programs that help you fulfill your personal goals.”

U.S. News and Report used a methodology involving expert opinions and statistics in ranking the strongest graduate programs. The statistics were based off of survey data collected in the fall or winter semester of 2016, touching upon average GPAs, faculty-student ratios and job placements after graduation.
