The Department of Classics on the St. George campus together with our Classicist and Ancient History colleagues at UTM and UTSC were awarded spot no. 13 in the recent QS World University Ranking. Place no. 1 is held by the Sapienza University of Rome.
We are among the most successful fields in the Faculty of Arts and Science at the U of T; our colleagues in many other departments are doing very well too.
Among the first fifty programs in Classics and Ancient History, the University of Toronto was the only one from Canada. Eleven institutions from the US were ranked; five just above the U of T and six lower down.
QS World University Ranking is one of the four or five international rankings that are published every year. Often rankings are not field-specific.
