  • Biological Sciences programs were ranked 68th among 83 schools rated.

“I am pleased to see our graduate programs receiving this recognition from the U.S. News survey,” said Joseph Childers, dean of the Graduate Division. “While a survey like this can’t tell you everything, it is indicative of the continuing health of UC Riverside’s graduate programs and the ongoing efforts being made to move the university as a whole from prominence to preeminence and to achieve the profile of an AAU-member university.”
