The Department of History and American Studies has joined two other units within the University of Wyoming’s College of Arts and Sciences in garnering national attention.

The Department of History and American Studies has been ranked on College Factual’s nationwide “Best Value for the Money” list for 2019. The department ranks No. 4 among 565 colleges and universities across the United States in history analysis programs. The rankings take into account the average time students take to graduate, as well as the quality the school provides and the average yearly cost of the school.

College Factual is an online service that helps “every student get their best fit education for less.”

Last week, UW’s Department of Communication and Journalism was ranked No. 8 in the nation, while the Department of English was No. 17 and UW overall was No. 10 on College Factual’s list of “Best Colleges for the Money.”
