Philosophy with Onbester

2018 QS Philosophy Rankings

The 2018 “QS World University Rankings” have been published, including rankings of philosophy programs.

 

Clare Graham, Yardstick Art

The rankings are conducted by the London-based education firm Quacquarelli Symonds. They take into account academic reputation, employability of graduates, research citations per faculty paper, and h-index. You can read more about the methodology here.

The rankings do not specify whether they are intended to assist prospective undergraduate or graduate students, though much of the materials seem oriented towards the former.

Several criticisms of the rankings, along with responses from QS, are discussed here and here. These rankings are far from uncontroversial, as, of course, is the very idea of fine-grained rankings of places to study philosophy.
