The 2019 Best Graduate Schools list was released last week by U.S. News and World report with an updated ranking of masters of public affairs and public administration programs. Typically the list of Public Affairs rankings are published every four years, however, the ranking was updated after only two years due to growing interest in the field.

Schools were ranked based on peer assessment surveys sent to “deans, directors and department chairs representing 282 master’s programs in public affairs and public administration,” according to the list’s methodology.
