World Ranking of Subject Areas, U.S. Public Universities

Another thing we like about the annual Times Higher Education World University Rankings is that they list the universities with the top rankings several subject areas, including engineering and technology; arts and humanities (literature, history, philosophy); life sciences (biology, chemistry); physical sciences (physics, geology); and social sciences (sociology, psychology, political science, economics).
