CEHD specialty program rankings rising in 2022 are:

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

  • 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.
