The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings of the top historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are in, with Howard University topping the list. Howard, located in Washington, D.C., not only earned the No. 1 spot, but is the only HBCU to crack the top 100 overall college rankings at No. 87.

The university, founded in 1867, is composed of 13 schools and colleges with more than 120 areas of concentration. As a leader in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, Howard is recognized as an institution that produces one of the highest number of “African-American undergraduates who later earn science and engineering doctoral degrees,” according to the school’s website.

The other HBCUs in the top five include Spelman College, Hampton University, Tuskegee University and Xavier University of Louisiana. HBCUs with enrollments of fewer than 1,000 undergraduates are not listed in these rankings.
