Psychology Ranked 13th in the World!

August 27, 2018
OSU Crest

Our excellent Department of Psychology received validation from a major world-wide rating organization. The Department of Psychology was recently rated as the #13 department of psychology in THE WORLD according to the 2018 Shanghai University rankings. What is important to note is that this ranking is based on empirical data (i.e. well accepted measures of scholarly productivity: publications, journal quality, citations, awards, etc.). This is in contrast to the long-standing non-empirical rankings by U.S. News and World Report that is based on reputation (OSU Psychology is currently tied for #21 in these rankings). Our goal within the Department, over the next 8 years, is to vault into the top 10 programs as we move from excellence to eminence. For more details on the Shanghai University rankings click here
