History at QMUL ranked in global top 50
History at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is ranked in the global top 50 and 11th in the UK, according to a prestigious survey of 4,438 universities. The seventh edition of QS World University Rankings by Subject found that four subject areas at QMUL are now placed among the top 50 – Drama, English, History, and Law.
Professor Matthew Hilton, Vice-Principal (Humanities and Social Sciences) said:“It’s really heartening to see such a solid performance for so many subject areas at Queen Mary. As well as individual results, the trend is important - we’ve increased the number of top 50 subjects from one in 2014 to four this year. I’m especially pleased for colleagues in the Drama Department, now ranked 30th in the world.”
The QS World University Rankings by Subject is considered to be among the most trusted of league tables. Rankings are based on academic and employer reputations and research citations per faculty (the number of times the research is credited in the work of other academics).
