Note to readers: This list is part of last year’s edition of our university rankings. For more on our latest edition, the Maclean’s 2015 University Rankings, visit this link.

The Maclean’s University Rankings place schools into one of three categories to recognize differences in levels of research funding, diversity of offerings and breadth and depth of graduate and professional programs. Universities in the Comprehensive category, ranked here, have a significant amount of research activity and a wide range of programs at the undergraduate and graduate level, including professional degrees. Be sure to check out the other two ranking categories, Medical Doctoral and Primarily Undergraduate, and our methodology. For dozens of charts, our reputation survey, student satisfaction results and stories about what’s new on campuses, buy the 130-page Maclean’s University Rankings, on newsstands and iPads.
