slides: NEW: US News Names Best Colleges 2014—How RI’s Colleges Ranked
Tuesday, September 10, 2013
There were few surprises at the top of the heap. Princeton, Harvard and Yale commanded the top three spots in the National Universities category, while Williams College in MA once again held on to its spot as #1 in Liberal Arts Colleges, followed by rival Amherst College at #2.
That's all well and good, but how did Rhode Island's colleges fare in this year's ranking? Who moved up, who went down? See how all of RI's colleges fared in the slides, below. (Note: New England Institute of Technology is unranked, as is RISD).
Note as to categories: Schools in the National Universities category, such as Brown University and URI, offer a full range of undergraduate majors, plus master's and Ph.D. programs. These colleges also are committed to producing groundbreaking research. Liberal Arts Colleges are schools like Williams, which emphasize undergraduate education and award at least half of their degrees in the liberal arts fields of study. Regional Universities offer a full range of undergrad programs and some master's programs but few doctoral programs, and Regional Colleges focus on undergraduate education but grant fewer than half their degrees in liberal arts disciplines.
