Johns Hopkins may no longer have the number one hospital system in the country (*sob*), but at least some of its graduate programs are considered the best in their class.
According to U.S. News’s 2016 graduate school rankings, which were released this week, Johns Hopkins has the #1 best program in the country in nursing, biomedical engineering, geriatrics, and public health.
“We’re gratified that we continue to be highly regarded by our peers,” Ed Schlesinger, dean of the School of Engineering, told the Hopkins Hub. (The biomedical engineering program has held the top spot ever since the magazine first began publishing rankings, back in 1990.)
Other local(ish) schools also did well in the extensive rankings: The University of Maryland has the best student counseling and personnel services (who knew?), while MICA has the third-best sculpture and graphic design programs.
