Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find rankings of colleges, universities, or graduate programs?

Answer:

  • US News & World Report Rankings
    The US News & World Report Rankings is a well-known ranking of universities by discipline, but actual research measures are not part of their ranking criteria.
  • Academic Ranking of World Universities
    The rankings of more than 1000 universities are published annually in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) by the Center for World-Class Universities and the Institute of Higher Education of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China.
  • Search MNCat for books on the topic or Ask A Librarian for other resources specific to your discipline.
