The 2016 QS World University Rankings ranked The University of Texas at Austin no. 5 among communication and media studies programs worldwide in their new report released March 22.

In existence since 2004, QS World University Rankings extended in 2011 to rank universities by popular subject areas. QS World University Rankings by Subject use data on reputation and research citations to highlight the top 200 universities for 30 subjects within five major subject areas. Subject areas include arts and humanities, engineering and technology, life sciences and medicine, natural sciences and social sciences.

"This ranking reflects the work we’ve been doing at Moody College in our goal to be the best college of communication in the world," said Jay Bernhardt, dean of Moody College. "I'm gratified that our excellence has been recognized through our world-class faculty members, students and supporters and this is great news for alumni, whose degrees continue to increase in value."

The report follows the recent release of U.S. News and World Report’s 2017 edition of "Best Graduate Schools," which ranked the master’s in speech language pathology program no. 7 and the doctorate of audiology program no. 13 in the nation. Both programs are housed in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders

QS World University Rankings are annual university rankings published by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), which provides overall rankings as well as ranking for individual subjects.
