Graduate and professional programs at the University generally held their positions or moved up slightly in the 2013 U.S. News and World Report rankings.
The rankings, released Tuesday, showed that, among three professional schools, the School of Medicine, in terms of research, and the Fuqua School of Business each moved up one place to eighth and 11th, respectively.
The School of Law maintained its 11th place ranking nationally.
The rankings come as each professional school sees significant changes. Bill Boulding recently began a full term as Fuqua dean, as the school aims to increase international programs and combine business education with other disciplines.
Applications to the Law School held steady amid a national decline. Dean David Levi noted in February that the school is increasing its academic programming to incorporate more fields, such as law and entrepreneurship.
The Medical School recently opened its new facility, the Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans Center for Health Education. The school’s division of neurology recently became a department, a move that officials said would help attract faculty and students.
The Pratt School of Engineering as a whole ranked 28th nationally, unchanged from 2012. Biomedical engineering alone ranked higher, coming in at fourth nationally.
