CEHD climbs up in latest online rankings


The School of Education and Human Development continues to climb in ranking, remaining one of the top 10 best online graduate programs in education in the country.

The 2022 U.S. News & World Report Best Online Program rankings, released today, show CEHD has risen to #5 overall for Best Online Master’s in Education program, up five spots from 2021.

CEHD also rose to #1 as Best Online Master’s in Education for Veterans, up three spots from 2021.

For the third year, U.S. News also included four rankings of education specialties offered online at the master’s level – Educational Administration and Supervision, Curriculum and Instruction, Educational/Instructional Media Design and Special Education.

CEHD specialty program rankings rising in 2022 are:

  • #7 – Educational Administration and Supervision
  • #8 – Educational/Instructional Media Design

CEHD has also earned “Best” status in the following areas:

  • Educational Administration and Supervision
  • Educational/Instructional Media Design
  • Special Education
  • Curriculum and Instruction
  • Best Graduate Program in Education

The purpose of these rankings is to help guide prospective students who are interested in pursuing a degree or coursework with one of these focuses.

U.S. News focused on five general categories to establish this year’s rankings: engagement, expert opinion, faculty credentials and training, services and technologies, and student excellence.

According to U.S. News, the annual specialty rankings are based entirely on responses to a peer assessment survey sent to directly to deans of education schools with online graduate programs and top distance-learning officials at those institutions.

U.S. News says for each specialty, respondents were asked to volunteer up to 15 institutions they believed had strength in these areas. To be rank eligible, a school must have received at least five ratings from peer institutions, been ranked in the main online master’s in education rankings and verified in the peer assessment they offer the specialty or else had this verified by U.S. News.
