Georgia State University’s College of Education & Human Development (CEHD) continued its rapid ascent up the U.S. News & World Report rankings of higher education graduate programs, placing 40th in this year’s survey.
The CEHD ranked 71st three years ago and jumped to 48 last year.
In the news magazine’s “Best Graduate Schools, 2019 edition,” the college was ranked alongside schools of education at the University of Iowa and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
U.S. News collected data from 385 schools across the country and calculated the rankings based on how administrators rated each institution, student selectivity, research activity and GRE scores, among other criteria.
“We are very pleased that faculty scholarship and teaching continues to be nationally recognized,” said Dean Paul Alberto. “This rise in the rankings confirms the quality of the education and research conducted in our college.”
The CEHD offers undergraduate, graduate and non-degree programs for professionals in education, human development and health-related fields. The college also shows a strong commitment to conducting funded research, receiving more than $21 million in external funding in the 2017 fiscal year.
