Loyola ranked #31 among top master’s universities nationwide – Newsroom
Loyola University Maryland was ranked #31 nationally in The Washington Monthly 2022 Master’s University Rankings, which ranks schools based on “what they do for the country”, measuring “their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility, research and the provision of public service opportunities”, according to the publication.
Additionally, Loyola was included in The Washington Monthly 2022 Best Bang for the Buck Rankings: Northeast, which ranks schools “on their ability to help non-wealthy students earn marketable degrees at affordable prices.”
“Loyola consistently receives top marks, but we’re especially pleased to rank high on a list that examines the good we bring to our city and our country,” said Terrence M. Sawyer, JD, president of Loyola. “As a Jesuit Catholic university, we are committed to going beyond providing a high quality education to developing the whole person and serving the community around us.”
The Washington Monthly Masters university rankings weigh social mobility, research and public service equally, taking into account graduation rates, student diversity, Pell Grant, cost of attendance, post-graduation income, AmeriCorps and Peace Corps data, and research and community service expenses, among other metrics.
