In the highly anticipated 2022 U.S. News & World Report rankings, released today, Arcadia University is once again ranked among the top Regional Universities in the North category. Arcadia is ranked 44th, among the top 34 percent of schools in this category and third among colleges and universities in the Philadelphia area in this category. 

The University also ranked 8th nationally (and 1st in Pennsylvania) in the Programs to Look For:  Study Abroad category, and Arcadia is listed as an A+ Schools for B Students and as a Top Performer in Social Mobility

“Arcadia University is proud to be among the top regional universities in the Philadelphia area and in its respective category,” said Ajay Nair, President of Arcadia University. “We also are proud that U.S. News & World Report continues to acknowledge the strength of some of Arcadia’s signature programs such as study abroad, as well as our efforts in social mobility and accessibility to our students.”  

In the Report’s 2022 rankings for Graduate Schools, released earlier this year, Arcadia’s graduate programs in Education and Public Health each ranked in their respective categories. Education placed in the top programs nationally (the report listed 277 unranked programs), remaining a top program for the second consecutive year. Public Health ranked among the top programs nationally (188 schools), increasing by six percent from the previous rankings. 

Earlier in September, Arcadia was ranked among the Princeton Review’s “Best Northeastern” schools for the seventh straight year
