U.S. News & World Report released its 2020 rankings of the country’s 275 graduate public affairs programs, and the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance will proudly maintain its overall top-ten ranking this year.

Five of our specialization areas were ranked in the top ten, including Environmental Policy and Public Finance & Budgeting, and we have been recognized for our school’s growing expertise with two newly ranked specializations: Local Government Management and Urban Policy.

We are proud that our perennially ranked, top-ten graduate program continues to demonstrate the relevance of our curriculum, the influence of our alumni and the impactful research of our faculty. While this is just one of many ways we track and evaluate our reputation and impact, it is an important reflection of how our academic peers view us, and it is evidence that we continue to receive recognition for the influential work that we do.

These rankings are released annually and are based on reputation and respect among peer institutions. These rankings are representative our leadership and expertise in these areas as an institution. See the full rankings here.
