Trinity Ranked as a Top Liberal Arts College in Nation by WSJ/THE
Trinity recognized as No. 38 liberal arts institution and the No. 106 college in the nation

The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (WSJ/THE) has named Trinity University the No. 38 liberal arts institution and the No. 106 college in the nation for 2022. Trinity is also the only liberal arts college in Texas ranked in the top 50 liberal arts colleges in the U.S. by WSJ/THE.

WSJ/THE defines a liberal arts college as one with an emphasis on undergraduate study that includes a wide range of subjects and states that “the best liberal arts colleges tend to have smaller student populations than other institutions.” Trinity is known for its small class sizes, boasting a 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio, and students can choose from a diverse range of more than 120 programs of study.

The WSJ/THE College Ranking is a pioneering ranking of U.S. colleges and universities that puts student success and learning at its heart.

The ranking includes clear performance indicators designed to answer the questions that matter most to students and their families when making one of the most important decisions of their lives: who to trust with their education. 

The ranking includes the results of THE U.S. Student Survey, which examines a range of key issues including students’ engagement with their studies, their interaction with their teachers, and their satisfaction with their experience.

The ranking adopts a balanced scorecard approach, with 15 individual performance indicators combining to create an overall score that reflects the broad strength of the institution.

This recognition follows several other notable rankings. Trinity was recently named the “Best in the West” by U.S. News & World Report and its faculty were ranked No. 1 in the West for undergraduate teaching. 

For 150 years, Trinity University has transformed challenge into boundless opportunity. Join the force in motion at
