Albright College has been ranked a Top Liberal Arts College and a Best Bang for the Buck in the Northeast by Washington Monthly for 2021. The nonprofit magazine’s rankings are based on social mobility, research and providing opportunities for public service.
Based in Washington, D.C., Washington Monthly is a bimonthly nonprofit magazine of U.S. politics and government. The magazine is known for its annual ranking of American colleges and universities, which serves as an alternative to Forbes and U.S. News & World Report rankings.
The organization ranks four-year schools (national universities, liberal arts colleges, baccalaureate colleges and master’s universities) based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility, research and providing opportunities for public service. Ranking America’s Best Bang for the Buck Colleges, Washington Monthly rated schools according to “how well they help non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.”
