According to one of the most prestigious rankings in the world, the Quacquarelli Symmonds World University Ranking (QS), the Archaeology major at the University of Warsaw was ranked very high (places 51-100). Our archaeology not only received the best score among all disciplines at UW, but is also at the top of the subject ranking in Poland. Most importantly, however, it is that Polish archaeology again has been ranked in the top 100 of the world ranking. Heartfelt congratulations to the entire UW Archaeology Department community!!!
