U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of global universities give insight into how universities and their programs compare within their own country, region and globally, both overall and within disciplines.

The overall Best Global Universities rankings encompass the top 500 institutions from 49 countries. These 500 institutions are the top out of a pool of 750 institutions ranked.

The rankings for disciplines are based on 8 indicators: global research reputation, regional research reputation, publications, normalized citation impact, total citations, number of highly cited papers, percentage of highly cited papers, and international collaboration. Institutional overall rankings also included the number of Ph.D.’s awarded, and the number of Ph.D.’s awarded per academic staff member.

Pharmacology and Toxicology are ranked together as an area of research by the methodology.

The UNC pharmacology and toxicology were superseded only by pharmacology and toxicology at Harvard University.
