Study at Claremont Graduate University

Ratings where it counts: teaching and research. The usual ratings of departments and schools turn out to be highly correlated with size, such as number of students. Size may mean that a place is better known however, it doesn't necessarily mean a place is better for education and research. CGU's Schools and Departments are among the smallest of the top universities in America. But when the rankings evaluate Schools and Departments "pound-for-pound"—thinking density and quality and not just mass—CGU's are among the best.
