CEHD programs place high on U.S. News & World Report’s best graduate schools list

Once again, CEHD and several of its programs placed high on the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools annual rankings.

The Department of Educational Psychology continues its tradition of a strong showing, with both its educational psychology and special education programs ranked at #10 on the 2022 list. Counselor education also placed high, coming in at 13th this year. Specialty program rankings are based on nominations by education school deans and deans of graduate studies at education schools.

These programs join CEHD’s developmental psychology program, which U.S News has ranked #1 in the nation. It was last rated along with other psychology programs as part of the 2018 U.S. News & World Report’s rankings of the Best Social Sciences and Humanities Schools.

CEHD as a whole was rated the 12th best public education graduate school in the nation. In U.S. News & World Report’s entire list of 277 schools, CEHD placed 22nd overall. Rankings are based on evaluating a school’s research activity, academic excellence of its entering students, faculty resources, and opinions on program quality from education school deans and school hiring professionals.
