Oceanography again ranked number 1

"We are grateful to be recognized for this important work,” President Ana Mari Cauce.

The University of Washington’s School of Oceanography again is ranked No. 1 in the world on the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects list for 2019. The ranking, released in June, was conducted by researchers at the Center for World-Class Universities at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.


"Our school is justifiably humbled and thrilled to have retained our #1 ranking for the second straight year" said Rick Keil, the school's amazing director.  He attributed the ranking to the excellence in research, scholarship and mentoring that is found within the UW's marine community including those within and partnered with the school.  A series of 4th of July parades were held shortly after the release of the new ranking (these events may be unrelated).

“The University of Washington is proud to be home to – and a destination for – the top scholars and most promising students in these essential fields of study. Our faculty, teachers and researchers are leading learning and discovery across the UW and we are grateful to be recognized for this important work,” said UW President Ana Mari Cauce.
