For the fifth year in a row, UC Berkeley ranks sixth in the world when it comes to its reputation among academic researchers, according to new rankings from Times Higher Education.  The U.K. publication’s annual World Reputation Rankings notes, “Berkeley faculty have won 19 Nobel prizes, mostly in physics, chemistry and economics,” adding that “Berkeley has a tradition as a center of political activism.” 

The rankings are based on opinions of academics across the world who were asked to name no more than 15 universities that they believed were the best for research and teaching in their field.
