Gains in sports-related subjects bolstered a strong showing by the University of Alberta in the 2018 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

The U of A moved up three spots to finish seventh in the area of sports-related subjects. .

Kerry Mummery, Dean of the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation, said the improvement, which is based on relative performance in research rankings—citations and h-index citations—shows the importance of research, as well as institutional reputation.

“Our strength in research is our diversity in research,” he said. “Although the term ’sport’ is featured in the name, the term encompasses work we do in the areas of sport, exercise, physical activity and health. Our diversity extends to the aspect of the areas studied—biological, mechanical, behavioural and sociocultural.”
