In 2015, the University of Bergen (UiB) won particular praise in the QS by Subject category Earth & Marine Sciences. This year the earth and marine science environment at UiB has been joined by Archaeology and Anthropology in the top 100 QS ranking for their disciplines. This strengthening is part of the on-going effort at UiB to position itself as an internationally acclaimed research university.

In 2014, UiB was not represented in the top 100 of the world’s universities in any subject, but was in the top 200 in eight subjects. In 2016, the UiB subjects represented in the top 200 has increased to nine.

“The fact that we are ranked among the world's top 100 universities in the subjects Earth & Marine Science, Anthropology and Archaeology and altogether are in the top 200 in nine subjects, both shows a clear profile and quality in a range of subjects. This is also in keeping with the goals set by Norway's Minister of Education and Research to improve quality," says Rector Dag Rune Olsen at the Universitety of Bergen.

In the subject Communication & Media Studies, UiB is ranked between 101 and 150. UiB also makes it mark in the subjects: History, Modern Languages, Politics & International Studies, Psychology, and Education. In these subjects, UiB finds itself ranked between 151 and 200 in the world.

A look at the QS by Subjects 2016 list, shows UiB among the world’s top 350 universities in 15 subjects. Not only does this show UiB’s excellent research, but also shows the comprehensive nature of the university’s research and education.
