Arts and humanities subject rankings-2022 results announced

Arts and humanities subject rankings 2022 results announced!!

The Times Higher Education’s Arts and Humanities Ranking is out. The UK is home to some of the world’s best universities for studying the arts and humanities, including the so many top-ranked universities in the world, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022.

Students who study the arts and humanities develop transferable skills such as the ability to think critically, analyze new information and communicate findings effectively. These can be applied to a range of careers, whether that’s in politics or education, law, or the creative industry.

 

The subjects used to create this ranking are:

    • Art, performing arts, and design
    • Languages, literature, and linguistics
    • History, philosophy, and theology
    • Architecture
    • Archaeology

 

Different weights and measures

The subject tables employ the same range of 13 performance indicators used in the overall World University Rankings 2022, brought together with scores provided under five categories.

However, the overall methodology is carefully recalibrated for each subject, with the weightings changed to suit the individual fields.

 

The weightings for the arts and humanities ranking are:

Teaching: the learning environment

    • 4 percent

Research: volume, income, and reputation

    • 6 percent

Citations: research influence

    • 15 percent

International outlook: staff, students, and research

    • 5 percent

Industry income: innovation

    • 5 percent

 

There are 11 subject tables, the publication thresholds are set differently. For arts and humanities, the threshold drops to 250 papers published in this discipline over the past five years.
