Leveraging its location in Canada’s capital, Carleton University has been ranked between 101-150 in the world for politics and international studies by the prestigious Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). This places Carleton well within the top one per cent of over 20,000 universities worldwide.
Indicators used to develop the rankings of more than 1,200 top universities across 78 countries include academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per paper and the H-Index indicating the production and impact of the average scholar in a given faculty.
“Carleton is pleased to see so many of our disciplines ranked in the top two per cent in the world, including computer science and information systems, English, electrical and electronic engineering, and mathematics,” said President Benoit-Antoine Bacon. “While Carleton has improved its ranking in subjects such as physics, and politics and international studies this year, we have not lost ground in any discipline.”
Carleton also recently achieved a top 10 ranking by QS World University Rankings in graduate employability.
QS World University Rankings was established in 2004 and is an independent source of global intelligence on the higher education sector.
