The QS World University Ranking has five subjects at McGill ranked in the top 20 worldwide, including Linguistics which made a big jump from 38 to 17 and cracked the top 20.

Each of the subject rankings is compiled using four sources. The first two of these are QS’s global surveys of academics and employers, which are used to assess institutions’ international reputation in each subject. The second two indicators assess research impact, based on research citations per paper and h-index in the relevant subject.
