If you thought our US News and World Report ranking of 23 was low, brace yourself: The 2009 Times Higher Education – QS World University Rankings just came out, and Georgetown is down to 129.
These rankings look at universities worldwide, so there’s a much larger pool of competition. Still, this year’s ranking is noticeably lower than where we were last year (110th) and where we were in 2007 and 2006 (102nd).
The Times Higher Education—QS rankings also come with specific subject rankings. While our Life Sciences and Biomedicine ranking was an underwhelming 162nd, we shined in Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences, coming in 75th and 57th respectively.
