For the second consecutive year, King’s College has been placed in the top five percent of all master’s degree granting colleges and universities in America in a ranking which emphasizes service to the community and social mobility of the student body.
The rankings appear in the September/October issue of “Washington Monthly” magazine as part of a cover story titled “2011 College Rankings: What Can Colleges Do for the Country.” The rankings were based on three evenly weighted selection criteria; social mobility, service, and research.
King’s ranked 25th from among “master’s universities” in the United States and one of only three in Pennsylvania ranked in the top 50, ranking behind Villanova University and ahead of the University of Scranton. King’s placed 30th in last year’s survey and was the only Pennsylvania-based entry to improve its ranking.
