The September 2010 issue of U.S.News & World Report, which hits newsstands Tuesday, Aug. 31, ranks more than 1,400 four-year accredited colleges and universities by mission and region. BYU falls into the category of "national universities," which includes schools that offer a full range of undergraduate majors, plus master's and doctoral degrees.

Additionally, it is listed as 4th in the category of "Least Debt," which compares the average debt carried by departing graduates.

The Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology was also listed among the top engineering schools, with its undergraduate program ranked 78th.

In specialty categories, the Marriott School ranked 3rd in accounting, 17th in international business and 21st in management.

The top five institutions in the "national universities" category were Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia and Stanford.
