Loyola University Maryland is No. 5 among the best universities in the North region in the U.S. News & World Report's “Best Colleges” guide for 2019. Loyola has been ranked in the top five more than a decade.

In addition to being ranked No. 5 in the North Region, Loyola was also listed at No. 12 for "Best Undergraduate Teaching," No. 49 for “Best Value Schools,” and No. 108 for “Best Undergraduate Business Programs.”

“Offering exceptional teaching to our students is a hallmark of Loyola’s Jesuit, liberal arts education, so it’s particularly gratifying to see our faculty commended for their contributions,” said Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president. “As a Jesuit university, we constantly challenge ourselves to improve the education and the experience our students enjoy. We hope to inspire that same desire to do and be more among our students and alumni, who go on to have a profound and meaningful impact on the world.”

The University’s undergraduate engineering program tied for No. 57 among all schools that do not have a graduate engineering program. Two of Loyola’s graduate programs also tied, No. 135 in clinical psychology and No. 92 in speech-language pathology.

U.S. News analyzed more than 650 regional universities in various categories including retention and graduation rates, class sizes, student/faculty ratios, and acceptance rates. The indicators were assigned a weight or grade based on U.S. News’ criteria.

Loyola was named one of “America’s Top Colleges” by Forbes and a best value college by Money Magazine.
