Georgia State University’s College of Education & Human Development (CEHD) has risen to No. 41 in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2022 rankings of higher education graduate programs, moving up nine spots from last year.
In addition, U.S. News ranked the college’s elementary teacher education (No. 20) and special education (No. 26) graduate programs among its rankings for those specific fields.
“We are proud that U.S. News & World Report continues to recognize our impactful scholarship and quality teaching, not only college-wide but also in our elementary education and special education programs,” said CEHD Dean Paul Alberto. “This year’s rankings reflect our faculty, staff and students’ commitment to their work and the college’s mission to move lives forward.”
U.S. News calculated their college and university rankings based on several criteria, including assessments from college deans and professionals who hire graduates from graduate education programs, research activity, student selectivity and faculty resources. Individual program rankings are determined by nominations from education school deans and deans of graduate studies at education schools.
The CEHD offers undergraduate, graduate and non-degree programs for professionals in education, human development and health-related fields and brought in a record $23.2 million in research funding in FY20.
