College ranking agencies such as the Princeton Review, U.S. News & World Report, and Forbes publish “The World’s Best Schools,” and other variations each year. They evaluate schools based on factors such as number of program offerings, graduation and retention rates, peer assessment, faculty resources (student-teacher ratio), financial resources, and student selectivity. A number of Georgia schools make the list each year, and some even offer fashion programs.
According to the Institute of Education Sciences’ (IES) most recent report, Georgia is home to 132 Title IV degree-granting universities. The state’s best schools can be found everywhere from Atlanta to Augusta to Savannah. Just a few of Georgia’s best fashion school programs can be found at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Georgia Southern University, and Clark Atlanta University.
