by | 10 Sep, 2019

Once again, U.S. News & World Report named several Nazarene institutions of higher education among "America's Best Colleges." The publication recently released their rankings for 2020.

Rankings are broken down into specific categories. The first 75 percent of schools in each category are given individual rankings. The next group of schools is in a "rank not published" section listed in alphabetical order, followed by an "unranked" section.

National Universities
Schools in the National Universities category, such as Harvard University and Princeton University, offer a full range of undergraduate majors, master's, and doctoral degrees. These colleges are also committed to producing ground-breaking research.

One Nazarene school was placed in the National Universities category (click on the school's name for U.S. News profile):

Trevecca Nazarene University (Rank No. 293-381; Nashville, Tennessee; Dan Boone, president)

Regional Universities
Regional Universities offer a full range of undergrad programs and some master's programs but few doctoral programs. Regional Universities include Villanova University, The Citadel, Butler University, and Gonzaga University.
