Biggest Gainers

Emory (+13), Virginia (+13), Notre Dame (+16), Rice (+15), and Georgetown (+13) are the biggest movers, but History sees the slightest changes in our series yet.

Don’t Forget the Liberal Arts!

Rankings can forget most Liberal Arts schools, but you should heavily consider one if history is your passion.

Pomona (5), Williams (8), Amherst (9), Swarthmore (12), Bowdoin (16), Barnard (18), and Wellesley (19) would all make the Top 25 if we looked at only Appily, CollegeVine, and Niche rankings.
