Best Art & Design Schools in North America

Updated:

EduRank

Below is a list of best universities in North America ranked based on their research performance in Art & Design. A graph of 770M citations received by 24.2M academic papers made by 1,317 universities in North America was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.

Please note that our approach to subject rankings is based on scientific outputs and heavily biased on art-related topics towards institutions with computer science research profiles.
