2014 University Rankings: Primarily Undergraduate results

Mount Allison holds on to first place while Acadia moves up

Note to readers: This edition of our university rankings was first published on macleans.ca in 2013. 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 Primarily Undergraduate category, ranked here, are largely focused on undergraduate education, with relatively fewer graduate programs and graduate students. Be sure to check out the other two ranking categories, Medical Doctoral and Comprehensive, 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.
