Featured campus

The QS World University Rankings — a leading organization for international rankings — rated the world’s top universities by subject area, and once again placed Stony Brook University’s Physics and Astronomy program in the top 100, coming in at #99.

Eight other subjects placed in the top 300 globally: Natural Sciences (#191), Mathematics (#151-200), Geology (#201-240), Geophysics (#201-240), History (#201-230), Biological Sciences (#201-250), Computer Science and Information Systems (#251-300) and Psychology (#251-300).

To produce the rankings for this year, QS analyzed the reputation and research output of almost 5,000 institutions. From this group, 1,561 were ranked across 55 narrow subjects and five broad subject areas, creating more than 19,100 entries.

Academic programs are ranked using five indicators to effectively reflect their performance, taking into account academic reputation, employer reputation and faculty research.
