CEHD Shines In U.S. News Graduate School Rankings

Four of the College of Education and Human Development’s graduate programs are considered in the top tier of graduate education according to the 2020 U.S. News Best Graduate Schools rankings.

The Educational Administration graduate programs in the Department of Educational Administration and Human Resource Development are ranked 13th.

“We are thrilled with the recognition and thankful for the valuable support from the college and university,” said Dr. Mario Torres, EAHR department head. This ranking reflects years of hard work and dedication into building a program designed around a core vision for preparing future school leaders and scholars to be equity conscious, navigate complex academic, political and legal conditions, and respond to shifting demographic needs. It is equally a tribute to the caliber of our faculty, staff, students and alumni.”

For Elementary Education, the Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture’s master’s in curriculum and instruction with a generalist emphasis is ranked 22nd. The department’s doctorate in curriculum and instruction is also ranked at 23rd in the Curriculum and Instruction category.

“Having two highly-ranked graduate programs within one department serves as an index of the world-class academic programs and faculty who are committed to a culture of excellence in research and discovery, and the scholarship of teaching,” said Dr. Michael de Miranda, TLAC department head.

Ranked 24th in the latest report is the Department of Educational Psychology’s graduate programs in Special Education.

Overall, the college moved up three spots to 34th.

This year’s rankings are based on two types of data – expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students.


In July, U.S. News & World Report’s Best Online Programs rankings listed the college’s online graduate programs as 16th in the country.
