Rome's Sapienza ranked top university in world for Classics, for fourth year in a row

Rome university retains top place for Classics in world rankings.

La Sapienza in Rome has been rated the top university in the world for Classical Studies and Ancient History, for the fourth year in a row, in the 2024 edition of the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings.

The Rome university also came first in Italy for Arts & Humanities and Natural Sciences, in 44th and 61st place respectively in the world rankings which are compiled by the London-based global higher education analysts.

"For the fourth year in a row, Sapienza's Classics Department is on the top step in line with the excellent results in the Humanities, enriched by national records in Archaeology, History, Art History, Archivistics and Library Science", said the university's rector Antonella Polimeni.

"The ranking also confirms Sapienza's position among the top 50 universities in the world in Physics, Astronomy and Law, subjects in which our University has a prestigious tradition" - Polmeni continued - "but also in more recent disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence".

The QS report, now in its 14th edition, analyses the performance of university programmes from almost 1,600 universities across 55 academic disciplines, grouped into five broad thematic sections.

The 2024 list is once again topped by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, followed by Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Stanford. For full rankings see QS website.
