    Baccalaureate Colleges (North) Rankings
    These colleges, including Cooper Union and Tuskegee, focus on undergraduate education that grant fewer than half their degrees in liberal arts disciplines. Baccalaureate colleges are ranked by region: North, South, Midwest, and West.

    Fascinating.

    USMMA, USCGA, and USAFA are grouped in the; “Baccalaureate Colleges” (less than 50% Liberal Arts degrees awarded) section which is broken down by geography.

    USAFA comes in first in the west against Oklahoma Baptist University (2) and Master’s College and Seminary (3).

    USMMA comes in 3rd, and USCGA comes in 2nd against........Cooper Union (1) and Elizabethtown College (4).

    THEN

    USMA and USNA are categorized as "Liberal Arts Colleges" (at least 50% Liberal Arts degrees awarded) section and are ranked numbers 14 and 19 respectively....against; Williams College(1), Amherst College (2), Swathmore College (3), Middlebury College (4)......

    That ranking was for overall Liberal Arts College (both public and private).
    For Best Public Liberal Arts College- USMA was #1 and USNA was #2. :smile:
