(Sept. 18, 2017) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio’s arts and humanities programs have been ranked No. 66 among the nation’s public universities, according to the 2018 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Arts and Humanities Ranking. The annual rankings measure world-class universities with programs in art, performing arts, languages, history, philosophy, theology, architecture and archaeology.
Drawing upon the methodology for Times Higher Education’s annual World University Rankings, the publication’s arts and humanities ranking is based on key performance indicators in five areas: teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income.
UTSA scored particularly high in the citations category, a measurement that evaluates an institution’s research influence by counting the number of times that studies by an institution’s researchers are cited in global scholarly publications.
“The UTSA College of Liberal and Fine Arts is home to world-renowned faculty and academically talented students who conduct high impact research in a variety of areas,” said Dan Gelo, dean of the UTSA College of Liberal and Fine Arts. “This ranking is an affirmation of the impact that their teaching and research have in Texas, the nation and world.”
Overall, Times Higher Education ranked 400 arts and humanities programs in more than 30 countries. One hundred-three U.S. colleges and universities, including six Texas institutions, made this year’s list.
Texas institutions included in the 2018 Times Higher Education (THE) World University Arts and Humanities Ranking include:
Rice University (#151-175)
Texas A&M University (#251-300)
Baylor University (#301-400)
With an enrollment of nearly 6,000 students and academic programs spanning 11 departments, the College of Liberal and Fine Arts is one of UTSA’s largest and most academically diverse colleges. Home to world-class faculty, the college contributes to the education of virtually every UTSA undergraduate student by offering much of the university’s core curriculum in the arts, humanities and social sciences. Additionally, the college is home to three research centers: the Bank of America Child and Adolescent Policy Research Institute, the Center for Archaeological Research and the Institute for Health Disparities Research.
