Times Higher Education names UMBC a leader in life sciences, physical sciences, psychology

The London-based Times Higher Education (THE) has released subject-area listings for its World University Rankings 2020, recognizing UMBC as among the best in the life sciences, physical sciences, and psychology.

Earlier this fall, before the subject-area rankings were announced, UMBC was included in the broader 2020 THE World University Rankings. UMBC was named among the top 800 universities worldwide — #130 among U.S. universities on that global list.

In April, Times Higher Education also recognized UMBC as #3 as in the nation in achieving social and economic impact. Their University Impact Ranking measured how well universities deliver on United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, a blueprint for global peace and prosperity.
