Georgetown University moved up to no. 21 in U.S. News and World Reports’ annual college rankings.

Schools ranked in the national universities category must offer a full range of undergraduate majors and graduate masters and Ph.D. programs and be committed to conducting research.

Last year, Georgetown was ranked 22.

“We believe our location in D.C., the richness of our tradition and the excellence of our faculty, are all valuable to these rankings [and are] the criteria that our students consider when choosing Georgetown,” University Spokesperson Stacy Kerr said.
