SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts named top music school in the country in study published in USA Today College

SMU heads top 10 list in rankings by College Factual

SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts has been named number one among the top 10 music colleges in the U.S. by College Factual, an organization that ranks colleges in multiple categories to help parents and students with college choice decisions. The top 10 list was published in USA Today College.

College Factual cites Meadows for its financial aid, number of music majors, individual attention to students and for focusing on “fostering artists’ abilities as both musicians and community influencers in a concentrated environment.”

“We are thrilled that Meadows is receiving well-deserved recognition for its music program,” said Sam Holland, director of the Division of Music and interim dean of the Meadows School of the Arts. “Our diverse music degrees and internationally acclaimed faculty attract top students from around the globe, who enjoy the best of both worlds – conservatory-quality training and an outstanding liberal arts education that prepares them to ‘make a difference’ in the world.”

Other universities on the list include Boston College, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Cornell, Brown, Duke, Columbia and the College of William and Mary.

College Factual considered a number of factors in the rankings, including early and mid-career earnings, number of graduates, percent of graduates in that major at the school, related majors offered and best overall college quality.
