Graduate programs in the Texas A&M University College of Science continue to gain ground in both quality and national prestige, according to the most recent annual survey by U.S. News & World Report.

The report, titled "America's Best Graduate Schools 2010," ranks Texas A&M's chemistry program 8th among public institutions and tied for 19th overall. In addition, the inorganic sub-program is listed 6th overall.

Statistics debuted in a tie for 12th overall and 3rd among publics in the survey's initial specific ranking of graduate statistics and biostatistics programs, which previously were combined with those for mathematics.

Physics and Mathematics each tied for 40th overall as well as 20th and 22nd, respectively, among all U.S. public programs.

U.S. News professional school rankings -- the result of individual surveys of thousands of academics and professionals nationwide -- are based on both program quality as viewed by experts and the actual quality of a program's students, faculty and research.
