Additionally, OHIO’s Physician Assistant Practice received its inaugural listing in U.S. News’ “Best Graduate Schools” rankings.

“Ohio University’s graduate programs are among the most innovative and accessible in the nation, and their strong performance wouldn’t be possible without the dedication and expertise of our faculty,” said Ohio University President Hugh Sherman. “OHIO remains committed to creating programmatic and professional education opportunities that benefit both our students and the local, regional and global communities they serve.”

Programs in the sciences, social sciences, humanities and health were based solely on ratings from academic experts.
