The University of Sussex has been ranked in the world’s top 100 universities for eight subjects in a new international ranking.
The QS University World Rankings by Subject ranked more than 4,000 universities and 42 subject areas to produce its league table. Particularly impressive was the fact that Sussex is second only to Harvard [and top in the UK and Europe] for development studies.
Professor Andrea Cornwall, head of the school of global studies, said: "It is vital that we work to address the most pressing global issues of our times and being ranked second in the world for development studies shows that we are helping to play a part in this.
“This ranking reflects the range of research and teaching in international development at Sussex, including by the School of Global Studies, Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Centre for international Education (CIE), the Department of Economics and the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU).”
Six other subjects at Sussex are ranked in the global top 100. They are Communication & Media Studies, English Language & Literature, Geography, History, Politics and International Studies and sociology
