Three School of Education programs ranked highly by US News & World Report

Three of the School of Education’s programs were ranked in the top 20 in their fields in the latest graduate school rankings issued by US News & World Report.

Overall, the School ranked in a tie at 35th, down from 33rd last year.

The rankings of schools of education were included in the 2017 annual “Best Grad Schools” guide. For the rankings of schools of education, US News surveyed 376 schools that grant doctoral degrees in education, with 255 schools responding to the survey. The rankings were released March 16.

“Our School of Education is a community of scholars and practitioners who are committed to helping lead in the pursuit of improvements in learning and in the communities and school environments in which students live and study,” said Deborah Eaker-Rich, interim dean of the School. “That work is reflected in our reputation which consistently leads us to be ranked among the top 10 percent of schools of education.”

Three School of education programs were ranked among the best in their fields:

Educational Administration and Supervision16th
Curriculum and Instruction17th (tie)
Special Education18th (tie)

The specialty rankings are derived from surveys of education school deans who are asked to select up to ten top programs in each area. Schools in each specialty area are numerically ranked based on the number of nominations they received.
