Considered the gold standard of academic quality rankings, the National Research Council's assessments of research-doctorate programs are the most comprehensive and respected evaluations of Ph.D. programs in the United States.
Although dated, the 1995 rankings are the most recent NRC rankings as of May 2010. The NRC plans to release an updated set of rankings using a revised methodology later in 2010.
In 1995, the NRC assessed doctoral programs in 41 fields of study at 274 universities. Overall, a third of all of UC's programs that were ranked in 1995 were in the top 10 percent nationally in terms of faculty quality.
