Ranked among the best

Furman is ranked among the best American colleges and universities—and the highest among South Carolina schools—in the 2018 rankings released by The Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education.

Furman ranked No. 151 out of 968 U.S. institutions that made the list.

The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Ranking is designed to “put graduate success and student learning at its heart.”

Developed in partnership with U.S. experts and universities, the rankings use 15 individual performance metrics, grouped into four pillars representing Resources (30%), Engagement (20%), Outcomes (40%) and Environment (10%). The performance indicators answer the questions that matter the most when students are choosing a university.
